Introduction To Neuroimaging: Cranial
- Registration Closed
This webinar will provide an introduction to cranial imaging for the advanced practice provider. Familiarity with neuroradiology imaging studies and imaging findings is of utmost importance in providing patient care. The goal of this session will be to review computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, discuss the strengths and differences of each modality for common pathologies, review indications and appropriateness criteria for imaging and how to choose the ideal study for common clinical scenarios, and review imaging features of commonly encountered intracranial pathologies.
