Or log in to access your purchased courses

Course Description

This enduring material is devoted to a review and new concepts in imaging neurological and musculoskeletal abnormalities. The course will feature an analysis of new techniques in MR imaging and where they are useful, and presentations on important abnormalities that are often overlooked but which can have great importance in patient care. Spine imaging and interventions, Joint and bone pathology, and intracranial pathology along with selected topics in head and neck abnormalities will be stressed.

Educational Objectives

After viewing this DVD, you should be able to:
• Recognize subtle abnormalities of the spinal column and spinal canal contents which have a great bearing on patient care.
• Understand how to employ the newest MR techniques such as permeability imaging, susceptibility imaging, diffusion kurtosis, among other advances in MR.
• Formulate a differential diagnosis for abnormal appearing bone marrow and how various MR sequences can assist in that differentiation.
• Recognize very subtle and easily missed diagnosis in MSK radiology and neuroradiology.
• Gain an insight into the analysis of paranasal sinus and orbital lesions and how these should be reported to be of most help to the ophthalmologic surgeon or to the head and neck surgeon.
• Offer a more exacting diagnosis of abnormalities involving the knee, hip, shoulder, ankle and wrist.
• Understand the various ways in which patients with dementia can present relative to their imaging findings.
