Neuroradiology

Earn up to 31 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 25 SAM Credits

This three-day neuroradiology course, led by Nafi Aygun, MD and Mahmud Mossa-Basha, MD, includes the four domains of neuroradiology in brain, spine, head and neck, and pediatric neuroimaging.

The material will be nearly exclusively centered on CT and MR imaging with advanced application techniques. General disease categories of vascular, inflammatory, demyelinating, traumatic, degenerative, neoplastic, congenital and metabolic diseases of the CNS and the head and neck in adults and children will be covered with case material.

The lectures each day will introduce common themes for differential diagnoses and lay the groundwork for extensive time devoted to reviewing a library of cases ranging in difficulty and disease type. Attendees can personalize their course by selecting more cases from one subspecialty area than another to remedy perceived weaknesses.

Program and Learning Objectives


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Provide limited relevant differential diagnoses for masses in different regions of the brain, spine, and head and neck
  2. Prioritize imaging studies and provide pertinent imaging features that will guide therapy in patients with strokes or other vascular lesions of the brain or spine
  3. Correctly utilize the terms accepted by the American Society of Neuroradiology for describing degenerative spondylotic disease of the cervical and lumbar spine
  4. List imaging features that help clinicians provide accurate TNM staging of head and neck cancers
  5. Differentiate among the many causes of sensorineural and conductive hearing loss through neuroimaging
  6. List features that distinguish the various cysts of the head and neck

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


All the instructors were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They were a pleasure to interact with.

Faculty was fantastic! Not only were they happy and pleasant to answer your questions despite how basic they may be, they were often sharing valuable experiences they had.

This is the most useful course I've ever attended. The combination of interpreting actual cases at a workstation with a broad spectrum of pathology, and the opportunity to directly communicate with the expert faculty for their approach to different cases, will allow me to apply what I've learned.  It goes above and beyond any didactic conference and is more high-yield than any short visiting fellowship.

Certificate


Attendees who interpret a minimum of 100 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Completion in Neuroradiology.
