Neuroradiology Webinar

Please join Neuroradiology stroke experts for a webinar presented by the ACR Commission on Neuroradiology, in collaboration with the Commission on Publications and Lifelong Learning, to better understand the latest advancements in imaging of acute stroke. Attendees will learn about updates for the most effective imaging strategies for triage of acute stroke patients and understand the strengths and limitations of imaging modalities in current practice. Stroke mimics and common pitfalls will also be addressed. This course will further help radiologists to understand stroke systems of care and provide insights into how radiologists can be effective leaders and play pivotal roles on multidisciplinary teams.
