Head & neck programming will focus on anatomy, inflammation and neoplasia of the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck and aerodigestive tract, and will additionally cover topics in orbital and skull base imaging. Brain lectures will include tumors, white matter disease, and both traumatic and non-traumatic emergencies, while spine lectures will cover degenerative, neoplastic and traumatic pathology. Each lecture will highlight imaging techniques, normal anatomy and common pathology with an emphasis on how the imaging findings directly affect patient management. Frequently missed diagnoses and strategies for error avoidance will be covered, as well.
