Neuroradiology – Head & Neck

Earn up to 35 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 25 SAM Credits

What part of the body engenders more fear in a radiologist than the head and neck? Eliminate your concerns in this three-day course taught by giants in the field of head and neck radiology.

Conducted by Nafi Aygun, MD, the course addresses the difficult anatomy and pathology of the head and neck. Material includes CT and MR imaging with advanced application techniques also applied to ultrasound and PET/CT. Emphasis is 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 workup 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 seminar.

Program and Learning Objectives


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

  1. Improve reporting of head and neck cancer imaging studies through familiarity with the AJCC TNM staging system
  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
