Opportunity to Attend a Hands-On Clinical fMRI and Diffusion Tractography Course


May 3-5, 2017

24 CME and 3 SAM credits

Course Director: Andrei I. Holodny, MD

Conference Location:

Weill Greenberg Center
Weill Medical College of Cornell University
1305 York Avenue (at 70th Street)
New York, NY 10065

Course Overview:

During most MRI procedures, there is no need for interaction between the administrator of the test and the patient. The situation is quite the opposite in functional MRI (fMRI), where the neurological status of the patient must be assessed; an appropriate paradigm must be selected based on the neurological assessment and prior MRI examinations. Further, the paradigm must be delivered to and successfully performed by the patient while in the MRI machine. In addition, there is a rather complicated analysis of the fMRI and diffusion tractography data, which must be performed and assessed. How to properly perform these tasks is often not addressed during residency and fellowship training or in annual scientific society meetings.

Target Audience:

Clinicians involved in fMRI, including neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons and neurologists.

Educational Objectives:

  • Understand the fundamental principles behind fMRI and diffusion tractography
  • Choose the optimal fMRI paradigms appropriate for the patient and clinical situation
  • Deliver fMRI paradigms correctly and monitor the patient for adequate compliance
  • Hands on experience so that the attendee will be able to analyze fMRI and diffusion tractography
  • Understand how data is delivered to a neurosurgical navigational system and used by the neurosurgeon
  • Avoid pitfalls in the interpretation of clinical fMRI and diffusion tractography
  • Optimize fMRI billing and coding

Accreditation Statement:

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the International Institute for Continuing Medical Education, Inc. and fMRI Consultants LLC. The International Institute for Continuing Medical Education Inc. is accredited by the ACCME …

A new use of the online social media feed was trialed during the 2016 meeting — live tweeting of questions for panelists. This was successfully implemented for the Gadolinium symposium. Whether in the room or tweeting from home, Twitter users could ask Dr. Max Wintermark and panelists questions using the hashtag #GadSymposium announced at the start of the symposium.


This year’s meeting also incorporated social media content into its Healthcare Policy programming and Young Professionals Section (YPS) programming tracks. Dr. Amy Kotsenas (@AmyKotsenas) presented the well-received “Technology Disrupters and the Impact of Social Media” Monday morning. The next day, the YPS track series began with inspiring leadership lectures from Drs. Robert Barr (@rmbxray) and Christine Glastonbury (@CMGlastonbury). This was followed by ‘Why’ and ‘How’ we do it sessions from Twitter super users …
