UCSF Neuro and Musculoskeletal Imaging 2017
UCSF Neuro and Musculoskeletal Imaging
University of California San Francisco Clinical Update (SA-CME)
Earn valuable CME credit with this comprehensive clinical update in neuroradiology and musculoskeletal imaging with a special focus on CT and MR.
Explore Key Topics in Neuro and Musculoskeletal Imaging
This course provides an update on the fundamentals of neuroradiology and musculoskeletal imaging. UCSF Neuro and Musculoskeletal Imaging includes case-based lectures on topics like the latest strategies for imaging of the peripheral nervous system, stroke and other neurologic emergencies, routine head and neck abnormalities, new metal reduction sequences for MRI, diagnostic approaches to wrist pain, etc. It will help you to:
- Refine imaging protocols for brain, head and neck, spine, nerve and musculoskeletal CT/MR imaging
- Implement newer MR sequences like 3D volumetric imaging and metal suppression techniques
- Discuss approaches for evaluation of common and uncommon abnormalities in neck and spine
- Attain the latest knowledge on MR arthrographic technique and findings
- Identify key imaging characteristics of bone tumors
The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine (UCSF) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
