ISMRM 23rd Annual Meeting & Exhibition 30 May - 05 June 2015 Toronto, Ontario, Canada

WEEKEND EDUCATIONAL COURSE
Neuro 1
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate
ORGANIZERS: Jonathan H. Gillard, M.D., FRCR, MBA & Howard A. Rowley, M.D.
Saturday, 30 May 2015
 
OVERVIEW
This course will explore the uses of MRI in the diagnosis and management of stroke, carotid atheromatous disease, parenchymal CS hemorrhage and head and neck cancer. Talks will focus what clinicians need, what radiologists can provide and what physicists can add.
 
TARGET AUDIENCE
Neuroradiologists, medical physicists, clinical neurospecialists and neuroimaging researchers.
 
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify appropriate imaging methods to select patients for stroke therapy;
  • Distinguish the most appropriate imaging techniques for evaluating carotid disease and recognise the rationale for using alternative imaging strategies;
  • Discuss appropriate imaging methods to investigate intracranial, parenchymal hemorrhage and evaluate their clinical benefit; and
  • Identify appropriate imaging methods to investigate head and neck cancer and evaluate their clinical benefit.
