This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
This course is designed to provide a practical yet detailed insight into the modern imaging diagnosis of head and neck cancer. Faculty will review the fundamentals of head and neck cancer imaging; including anatomy, and imaging characteristics of tumors of the skin, mucosal surfaces, sarcomas, HPV-associated phenomena, and perineural tumor spread. Pearls and pitfalls on how to best image various head and neck cancers, and avoiding misdiagnosis will be presented. Case presentation sessions will encourage audience participation.
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
• Recognize the etiologic and risk factors in the development of Human Papilloma Virus-associated head and neck malignancy.
• Describe the role of the radiologist in treatment planning of head and neck cancer.
• Determine the optimal imaging techniques for imaging the head and neck utilizing CT, MRI, and PET/CT.
• Illustrate the imaging appearance of typical complications that may result from therapy for head and neck cancer.
• Appreciate the complexity of determining post-treatment efficacy in head and neck cancer by CT, MRI, and PET/CT.
• Recognize the clinical circumstances surrounding, and imaging appearance of cranial neuropathy and perineural tumor spread in the head and neck cancer patient.
