Neuroradiology Post Graduate Course: Head and Neck Radiology – Harvard Medical School
September 19, 2016 - September 23, 2016$1,130
Neuroimaging is a rapidly advancing field with frequent new developments in scanning modalities, protocols, clinical indications, patient management, and post-processing techniques. These can result in practice gaps among caregivers challenged to continually update their experience and expertise.
The educational objective of this intensive five-day course is to provide a comprehensive review of basic and advanced principles in the management, acquisition, and interpretation of structural and functional imaging studies of the brain, spine, and extracranial head and neck. Interactive learning formats such as Q&A sessions and group case discussions will be incorporated into the course to enable the participants to develop new strategies they can use in their practice setting. A renowned guest faculty, well known for their extensive contributions in neuroradiology, head and neck radiology, functional MRI and MR spectroscopy will join distinguished Harvard Medical School faculty from Massachusetts General Hospital, the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in presenting this year’s up-to-date overview.
This year’s course will include a new mini-symposium on Emergency Neuroradiology, which will feature Traumatic Brain Injury and Head Trauma. There will also be mini-symposiums on Stroke, Brain Tumors, and Spine Imaging, as well as sessions on Pediatric Neurologic Emergencies and Diseases of White Matter. New concepts and recent developments in the diagnostic approach to clinical problems using basic and advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), angiography, fMRI, MRS, PET, and neurovascular sonography will be discussed by leaders in the field. A comprehensive syllabus will be provided as a permanent record of the course.
The course is designed for beginning and experienced radiologists and neuroradiologists in clinical practice. This course should be of special interest to those who plan to take the examination for the subspecialty certification in neuroradiology, which is sponsored by the American Board of Radiology. It will also be of interest to neurosurgeons, neurologists, otolaryngologists, osteopaths, neuroscience clinicians, residents, technologists, technical representatives, health planners, and residents preparing for board examinations in radiology, neurology or neurosurgery. This will be a unique opportunity for the participants to enhance their skills and evaluate some of the latest advances in the field of radiology.
