This two-hour course will cover clinical issues with imaging as a tool. The principal topics to be covered are pediatric infections, prenatal congenital infections, and acute demyelination. Our overall goal is to enable attendees to become familiar with MR patterns according to clinical context and age.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Apply MRI to evaluation of pediatric infections according to clinical needs and age;
Describe infection-related imaging findings according to clinical settings and age; and
Describe MR findings in acute pediatric demyelination.
This course is designed for neuroradiologists, pediatric radiologists, general radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, MR technologists, physicists and engineers associated with neuroimaging. Clinical and pediatric experience will be helpful.
