UCSF Neuro & Musculoskeletal Imaging Update
This course will present a comprehensive state-of-the-art update on clinically relevant topics in neuroradiology and musculoskeletal imaging, including a discussion of optimized protocols with 1.5T and 3T MR units. Neuroradiology topics to be addressed include routine conditions in pediatric neuroimaging, updated strategies for imaging of the spine and central nervous system, stroke and other neurologic emergencies, and routine head & neck abnormalities. Musculoskeletal imaging will include throwing injuries of the elbow and shoulder, and a thorough review of shoulder and hip imaging, including the use of ultrasound for the hip.
Self-Assessment (SAM) Credits
This course will off er 22.5 Self-Assessment credits (pending approval and subject to change): 9.0 in Musculoskeletal and 13.5 in Neuro. As of January 1, 2013, updated MOC Part 2 requirements: 75 CME credits every three years, at least 25 of which must be self-assessment activities.
At the completion of this course, the attendee should be able to:
1. Update and improve imaging protocols for brain, head & neck, spine, nerve and musculoskeletal imaging
2. Recognize specifi c imaging features of infection and tumors in the head, neck, spine and peripheral nerves
3. Distinguish between normal anatomy, common anatomic variants and pathological disorders related to MRI of the major musculoskeletal joints, brain, head, neck and spine
4. Recognize internal derangement appearances of the knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and foot
5. Implement newer MR sequences such as 3D volumetric imaging and metal suppression techniques
6. Understand the parameters of MR arthrographic technique and interpretation of fi ndings
7. Sharpen evaluation of muscle and tendon abnormalities, and evaluate various abnormalities that simulate
8. Develop strategies for creating short brain, spine and neck diff erentials
9. Understand advances in stroke management and its impact on imaging
10. Develop strategies for evaluating common and uncommon abnormalities in the neck and spine.
