Learning Objectives The main purpose of this lesson is to stimulate thestudents to recognize the value of gross anatomy andphysiology of the CNS as major foundations in clinicalpractice. The students will be able to 1. Understand the principles of CT, MRI,Angiography PET and SPECT 2. Recognize the multiplanar normal neuroimaginganatomy 3. Recognize the imaging of the CSF pathway,intracranial arteries and venous system
Content Outlines1. Basic knowledge of CT, MRI, Angiography, PET and SPECT2. CT scan of the nervous system3. MRI of the nervous system4. Vascular imaging of the CNS: angiography, CT angiogram and venogram and MRA/MRV
Learning Organization1. Study the learning materials provided in advanced2. Lecture 40 minutes3. Questions and answers 10 minutes
