Advances in Neuroimaging: Essentials to Cutting-Edge

  2. 2. ADVANCES IN NEUROIMAGING ESSENTIALS TO CUTTING-EDGE / Sep. 10–13, 2012 This course will update the participants on both fundamental and cutting-edge diagnostic imaging techniques for brain, neck, spine and peripheral nerve diseases of adults, children, infants and fetuses, as well as applications of fMRI and spine interventions (nerve blocks, facet blocks, nerve root ablations and blood patches). The latest advances in CT/MRI protocols, post-processing, and advanced MR imaging techniques will be discussed with an aim to improve throughput and interpretation of brain, neck and spine lesions. Lectures will focus on up-to-date imaging protocols, as well as specific imaging strategies to solve clinical questions, comprehensive overviews of fetal and pediatric neuroimaging, radiation safety and dose reduction in diagnostic CT imaging, and spine interventional procedures. In addition to the case-based lectures, the course will include: - “Hot Topic” presentations to highlight imaging pearls & pitfalls in the diagnosis of brain tumors, stroke imaging, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy and disorders of the immature nervous system (fetus and neonate). - Three concurrent afternoon workshop sessions will be presented, providing the participants with an opportunity to learn about specific neuroradiology topics in a smaller group format with a hands-on, interactive approach. The workshop topics will be related to lecture topics given that same morning. There will also be a Quality Improvement session, as an aid for those preparing to complete requirements for their Maintenance of Certification in Neuroradiology. Earn SAM Credit An opportunity for completion of a self-assessment module (SAM) will be offered during this course. “Brain Tumor Mimics” for 1 SAM credit will be presented. This SAM is currently pending approval by the American Board of Radiology, in meeting the criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program. SAM credits are required for radiologists certified since 2002.2
  3. 3. At the completion of thiscourse, the attendee shouldbe able to:1. Apply acquired knowledge and concepts in the latest advances in neuroradiology into his or her clinical practice;2. Describe state-of-the-art and future applications and techniques for brain and spine imaging, including perfusion and diffusion MR imaging processing;3. Reduce radiation dosage without compromising image quality of computed tomography studies;4. Become familiar with technique and interpretation of fetal and neonatal MR imaging, head annd neck masses; improve imaging differentiation between brain tumors and tumor mimics;5. Describe the latest advances in treatment and imaging of acute cerebrovascular disease;6. Formulate a quality improvement project in his or her practice.EnrollmentPre-registration is encouraged to ensure your space in this course.Pre-register by July 13, 2012 and save $75 on your registration fee.TUITION $1050 for practicing physicians; $1000 for UCSF Radiology AlumniON-SITE REGISTRATION Monday, September 10, 2012 at 7:30 amParc 55 Wyndham San Francisco Union Square55 Cyril Magnin at Ellis – San Francisco, CaliforniaSYLLABUS Printable PDFs of presentations will be available online one week prior tothe course, and attendees should print out and bring pertinent presentations with them.An electronic syllabus and paper notebook will be provided.You must provide an email address with your registration to receive advance syllabusinformation.

City of San Francisco #1 U.S. City – 2010 Reader’s Choice, Conde Nast Traveler San Francisco Visitor Information Center 800 Market Street at Fifth Street / Powell Station, at the cable-car turnaround near Union Square. San Francisco is often called Everybody’s Favorite City, a title earned by its scenic beauty, cultural attractions, diverse communities, and world-class cuisine. Measuring 49 square miles, this very walk-able city is dotted with landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Alcatraz and the largest Chinatown in the United States. A stroll of the City’s streets can lead from Union Square to North Beach to Fisherman’s Wharf, with intriguing neighborhoods to explore at every turn. Views of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay are often laced with fog, creating a romantic mood in this most European of American cities. Many visitors like to combine their stay in San Francisco with a side-trip or short stay in the Napa-Sonoma wine region or the Monterey coast.8
