Neuroradiology – Head & Neck

Earn up to 31 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

What part of the body engenders more fear in a radiologist than the head and neck?

Your concerns will be eliminated by this special offer course taught by giants in the field of head and neck radiology. This three-day head and neck neuroradiology course will address all the difficult anatomy and pathology of the head and neck. The material will include predominantly CT and MR imaging with advanced application techniques also applied to ultrasound and PET/CT. Emphasis will be placed on the TNM staging of cancers of the aerodigestive system, the intricate anatomy of the sinonasal cavity, lesions that arise from and cross the skull base, and deep space tumors of the neck. Plus discover the most common sources of anxiety: lesions of the temporal bone, the brachial plexus and the teeth.

Attendees will learn the appropriate work-up of incidental thyroid nodules, enlarged lymph nodes and cysts in the head and neck. This is the definitive course that will shore up a weak area in nearly every radiologist's repertoire. Sixteen 30-minute lectures will create the foundation for reviewing over 180 head and neck cases during this three-day seminar. Return home the superstar of neuroradiology of head and neck imaging.

Program and Learning Objectives


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

  2. Provide a concise differential diagnosis of red and white retrotympanic middle ear masses
  3. Describe the sinonasal and osteomeatal complex inflammatory disease in a way that assists the endoscopic sinus surgeon and highlights potential and existent complications
  4. Describe the role of ultrasound, fine needle aspiration, and PET/CT in the work-up and follow-up of masses in the neck
  5. Locate an extramucosal mass in the head and neck in a fascia-lined space and provide a limited differential diagnosis for lesions in that space
  6. Differentiate among the common cysts and solid masses arising from the teeth

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


I simply feel more comfortable reading head and neck cases. Refreshed my existing knowledge, and considerably added to my knowledge base.

The level of interaction with the faculty is wonderful. The quality of faculty is superb.
