This program is designed for practicing radiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons that interpret or rely on imaging studies for the evaluation of neurological disorders. Radiologic technologists who perform these types of procedures will also find the program beneficial.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss the advances in neuroimaging applications and interpretation.
  • Evaluate intracranial tumors, vascular abnormalities and traumatic brain injury.
  • Discuss the clinical and imaging manifestations of neurodegenerative disease.
  • Apply state of the art imaging protocols to evaluate epilepsy to clinical practice.
  • Recognize image characteristics of common neurovascular disease processes.
  • Utilize CTA and MRA in neuroradiology applications.
  • Describe the changing role of imaging in the management of spine disease.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
