American Society of Functional Neuroradiology - A Video CME Teaching Activity is organized by docmedED.com Educational Symposia (ESI) ON-DEMAND and will be held from Jun 15, 2016 - Jun 14, 2019.
The target audience for this medical event is to educate anyone interested in functional neuroimaging including neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, brain mapping scientists, cognitive neuroscientists, physicists, fellows, residents, doctoral and postdoctoral students, engineers and ancillary staff. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 13.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.
A broad range of cutting-edge topics in functional neuroradiology is featured throughout this program, including dynamic fMRI and MEG for time-resolved functional brain mapping, diffusion tensor imaging and tractography, advanced diffusion techniques (DKI, NODDI, RSI, etc.) for microstructural tissue modeling, structural and functional connectomics, perfusion, permeability, quantitative susceptibility mapping, and other novel quantitative neuroimaging biomarkers. This activity focuses on the current status of functional and physiologic imaging methodology, current controversies in the field, and promising new techniques. There is emphasis on pediatric neuroimaging including special lectures on the connectome of the developing brain, advanced imaging of neurodevelopmental disorders with a focus on autism and on adolescent cognitive maturation, as well as new techniques for pediatric stroke and pediatric brain tumor imaging.
• Describe the underlying physical basis of advanced functional and physiological imaging techniques such as BOLD and resting state fMRI, Diffusion-weighted Imaging, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, Dynamic Susceptibility and Dynamic Contrast-enhanced MRI, Arterial Spin Labeling, Susceptibility-weighted Imaging, MR Spectroscopy, and MEG Imaging.
• Explain the clinical applications and limitations of advanced functional and physiological imaging techniques.
• Discuss how to effectively integrate functional imaging techniques into clinical practice with awareness of pertinent economic and logistical issues.
