Course Objective

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Describe current concepts in imaging of disorders of the brain, spine, skull base, neck, and cerebral/cervical/spinal vasculature
  • Identify clinically relevant findings on CT and MR imaging studies of patients requiring emergent treatment of infectious/inflammatory/ischemic/traumatic conditions affecting the brain, spine, spinal cord, skull base, orbits, temporal bones, face, neck, and associated vasculature
  • Apply multiple state-of-the-art imaging modalities to differentiate neoplastic from non-neoplastic disorders of the central nervous system, head, neck and spine
  • Discuss techniques for radiation dose reduction in CT protocols
  • Discuss current best practices in the imaging and management of vascular lesions of head, neck and spine, potential complications of those therapies and imaging of the post-operative patient
  • Identify anomalies on prenatal ultrasound and MRI examinations
  • Describe the anatomy as it pertains to surgical landmarks of the nasopharynx, oropharynx, oral cavity, larynx, and hypopharynx as well as analyze patterns of spread of upper aerodigestive tract malignancie
