Neuroimaging is a rapidly evolving field with frequent new developments in scanning modalities, protocols, clinical indications, patient management, and post-processing techniques. These can result in practice gaps among caregivers challenged to continually update their experience and expertise.

The educational objective of this intensive five-day course is to provide a comprehensive review of basic and advanced principles in the management, acquisition and interpretation of structural and functional imaging studies of the brain, spine, and extra-cranial head and neck. Interactive learning formats such as Q&A sessions and group case discussions will be incorporated into the course to enable the participants to develop new strategies they can use in their practice setting. A renowned guest faculty, well known for their extensive contributions in neuroradiology and head and neck radiology will join distinguished Harvard Medical School faculty from Massachusetts General Hospital, the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in presenting this year’s up-to-date overview.

This year’s course will include a new mini-symposia on cerebral vasculitides and vessel wall imaging; infectious and inflammatory diseases; artificial intelligence in neuroimaging; and health care reform and radiology. There will also be mini-symposiums on stroke, cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral metastasis and spine imaging, as well as sessions on the central skull base, the temporal bone and masses of the head and neck. Leaders in the field will discuss new concepts and recent developments in the diagnostic approach to clinical problems using basic and advanced neuroimaging. A comprehensive syllabus will be provided as a permanent record of the course.

The course is designed for beginning and experienced radiologists and neuroradiologists in clinical practice. This course should be of special interest to those who plan to take the examination for the subspecialty certification in neuroradiology, which is sponsored by the American Board of Radiology. It will also be of interest to neurosurgeons, neurologists, otolaryngologists, osteopaths, neuroscience clinicians, residents, technologists, technical representatives, health planners, and residents preparing for board examinations in radiology, neurology or neurosurgery. This will be a unique opportunity for the participants to enhance their skills and evaluate some of the latest advances in the field of radiology.
