Neurology: Gadolinium - Based Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Characterization of Leptomeningeal Inflammation in Multiple Sclerosis is organized by American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and will be held during Jul 07, 2015 - Jul 07, 2018.
The target audience for this medical event is physicians who are involved in providing patient care and who wish to advance their current knowledge of clinical medicine. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credits.
Learning Objectives :
Upon completion of the article by Absinta et al, the participant should be able to:
• Recognize that the processes that underlie the progressive phase of multiple sclerosis (MS) remain unclear.
• Discuss the possibility that one potential candidate area where persistent inflammation may result in neurodegeneration in MS is the leptomeninges.
• Recognize that a spectrum of leptomeningeal pathology has been observed in biopsies at the time of clinical presentation and postmortem in MS.
• Discuss the findings from this study assessing the prevalence, distribution, and clinical and laboratory associations of leptomeningeal enhancement in MS patients.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
