Stay Current on Rapidly Changing Specialty
 
UCSF Neuro and Musculoskeletal Imaging is a comprehensive state-of-the-art update on clinically relevant topics in neuroradiology and musculoskeletal imaging. This in-depth CME course includes case-based lectures on topics like skeletal trauma, shoulder instability, brain tumor pitfalls, hydrocephalus, staging cervical nodes, and more. It will help you to better:
 
  • Revamp imaging protocols for brain, head & neck, spine, nerve and musculoskeletal imaging
  • Understand the parameters of MR arthrographic technique and interpretation of findings
  • Develop strategies to create short brain, spine and neck differentials
  • Implement newer MR sequences like 3D volumetric imaging and metal suppression techniques
  • Understand advances in stroke management and its effect on imaging
  • Outline strategies to evaluate common and uncommon abnormalities in the neck and spine
 
This course is strictly ONLINE with no download – an internet connection is critical in order to do this course.  Do not complete testing prior to the end of your chosen date period or your dates will be adjusted.
