  • Optimize MR and CT imaging protocols.
  • Differentiate normal from abnormal MR and CT findings of a variety of disorders.
  • More accurately assess neurological disorders using MR and CT.
  • Explain the clinical indications and applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  • Discuss how innovative technologies are changing and improving the quality of healthcare.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
