About the Meeting
This course is designed to provide an update in imaging strategies for cerebrovascular emergencies. This course dives into the epidemiology and treatment of acute stroke, intracranial hemorrhage and vasospasm. Faculty provide tips into the latest imaging techniques and interventional procedures used to diagnose and treat acute stroke and intracranial aneurysm.

Target Audience
This course is designed for practicing radiologists, neurointerventionalists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and emergency department physicians that interpret or rely on imaging studies for the evaluation of cerebrovascular disorders.

Educational Objectives

Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss updates in stroke and cerebrovascular disease diagnosis and management including acute stroke and cerebral aneurysm. 
  • Utilize state-of-the-art stroke imaging protocols to assess acute stroke to clinical practice.
  • Describe the role of radiology in the assessment and treatment of acute stroke and cerebral aneurysm.
  • Recognize the image findings associated with vasospasm and delayed ischemia.
  • Compare the use of surgical management and vascular intervention in the management of intracerebral hemorrhage.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
