Weekday Educational Course:
Epilepsy: From Electrophysiology to Imaging & Back Again
Clinical Intensive Education Option
Organizer: Stefan Sunaert, M.D., Ph.D.
Skill Level: Basic - Intermediate
Wednesday, 5 May 2010
10:30 - 12:30

This two-hour course will be taught by M.D. clinician scientists and directed at understanding the neurophysiology of epilepsy, the use of MR imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of seizures and understanding combined approaches for diagnosis and therapy of epilepsy using fMRI, DTI, MEG, SPECT, and EEG.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
  • Describe current concepts regarding underlying neurophysiology of epilepsy;
  • Explain application of MRI to the diagnosis, evaluation and therapy of patients with seizures; and
  • Describe and compare utility of individual imaging techniques and their combined use for diagnosis and therapy in epilepsy.

  Moderators: Micheal D. Phillips, M.D. and Stefan Sunaert, M.D., Ph.D.
