About The Webcast
This symposium provides a practical, comprehensive review of the important aspects of clinical MRI/MRA of the head & spine. Physicians and technologists practicing neuroradiography utilizing MRI should expand their knowledge base and obtain additional information on safe and efficient scanning protocols.

Target Audience
This CME activity designed to educate physicians who supervise and interpret neurological MRI studies. This CME activity should also be useful for referring physicians who order these studies so that they might gain a greater appreciation of the strengths and limitations of clinically relevant neuroradiology. MR Technologists should also find this program beneficial.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Optimize imaging protocols and techniques to effectively assess CNS pathology.
  • Effectively assess cerebral hemorrhage, the temporal bone, neurodegenerative disorders and CNS infections.
  • Discuss the expanded role of MRI/MRA of the brain and spine.
  • Review and recognize the diverse pathology that affects the spine, including congenital, degenerative, demyelinating, inflammatory, traumatic, and vascular conditions.
  • Describe evolving MRI applications and techniques used to evaluate the brain and spine.
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.

Acknowledgement
