Course Objectives

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of radiologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons who utilize imaging in the treatment of their patients. After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Discuss the practical neuroanatomy of the brain, spine, head and neck
  • Discuss the MR and CT appearance of abnormalities in the brain, spine, head and neck
  • Identify arterial and venous cerebral infarction
  • Describe the imaging appearance of pathology affecting the paranasal sinuses, aerodigestive tract, sellar and parasellar region
  • Explain how to utilize Ultrasound and CT in the evaluation of the thyroid nodules
  • Review the updated guidelines for recommending fine-needle aspiration, molecular testing and follow up imaging of thyroid nodules
  • Discuss the fundamentals of interpretation of adult and pediatric neuroimaging in the emergency department
  • Summarize state-of-the-art concepts of stroke imaging and review common stroke mimics
