Organizers: John D. Port, M.D., Ph.D., Mark A. van Buchem, M.D., Ph.D.
Skill Level: Basic
Wednesday, 7 May 2008
In this two-hour course, each speaker will provide a broad overview as well as focus on the use of MRI to diagnose and monitor treatment in patients with CNS autoimmune diseases. Four immunologially-mediated diseases with CNS manifestations will be discussed: auto-immune vasculidities, such as systemic lupus erythematosus; auto-immune leukoencephalopathies, such as multiple sclerosis, acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis, and subacute sclerosing panenecphalitis; sarcoidosis; and paraneoplastic syndrome.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
The clinical categorical courses are designed for clinical radiologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, cardiologists, oncologists, practicing clinicians and scientists, from beginning to advanced experience levels working in MR.
