About The Meeting
The purpose of this CME program is to review fundamentals of head & neck and brain imaging, as well as some topics of increasing importance in clinical practice. Lectures will focus on the spaces of the head & neck, temporal bone, sinuses, skull base, and larynx, in addition to topics in general neuroradiology. Each lecture will highlight imaging techniques, normal anatomy and common pathology with an emphasis on how the imaging findings directly affect patient management. Case-based lectures are designed to be interactive with audience participation encouraged. Both adult and pediatric pathology will be covered.

Target Audience
This meeting is designed for general radiologists who wish to gain a better understanding of head & neck imaging and neuroradiology, as well as neuroradiologists desiring a comprehensive review of clinically important head & neck topics. Otolaryngologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and other physicians who care for patients with head & neck and neurologic disorders should also find this program beneficial.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Identify normal anatomical features and common anomalies of the head & neck.
  • Recognize imaging characteristics of common pathology in the head & neck and brain.
  • Describe the specific role of the radiologist in the diagnosis and management of pathology in the head & neck and brain.
  • Integrate state of the art imaging protocols to effectively evaluate head & neck and brain pathology in clinical practice.
  • Differentiate infection from other pathology of the central nervous system.
  • Review current stroke imaging protocols and discuss evolving techniques utilized prior to treatment.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Course Organization
This program is planned and organized by Educational Symposia, a leader in continuing medical education since 1975.
