Radiology’s Neuro, Head and Neck Imaging features the integration of nuclear imaging including PET/CT along with MRI, CT, MRA and CTA in the evaluation of CNS and neck pathology. The presenters of this program employ a whole body approach for the assessment and treatment of diseases of the head, neck, brain, spine and blood vessels from the aortic arch through the Circle of Willis. Special focus on cutting edge technology, dose reduction, dual energy imaging and patients with implantable devices.
Radiology’s Neuro, Head and Neck Imaging is worth up to 17.5 credits, all of which are applicable to the ABR self assessment CME requirements for maintenance of certification (MOC). Presentations are Playable on Mobile Devices.
