COURSE DESCRIPTION
Join us this November in New York City as the NYU Center for Stroke and Neurovascular Diseases launches a three-day course dedicated to the teaching of advanced neurovascular anatomy. Continued advances in minimally invasive neurovascular techniques such as treatment of stroke, cerebral aneurysms, brain and spine fistulas, arteriovenous malformations, tumors, and other pathology place increasing emphasis on the availability of advanced neurovascular anatomy training. This course is designed for neurovascular trainees, faculty, nurses, advanced practice providers, technologists, and other catheterization lab staff. Multimodality instruction will include angiography (including volumetric and stereoscopic imaging), MR, CT, graphic design, and virtual reality material. A mixture of lectures, interactive workshops, and online material, delivered by world-class neurovascular anatomy faculty, will be directed towards the goal of maximizing accurate diagnostic and successful procedural outcomes through knowledge of essential clinically-relevant anatomy.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Neurovascular fellows and junior attendings in radiology, neurology, neurosurgery, cardiology, and vascular surgery.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:

  • Define major features of spinal arterial and venous anatomy and identify vascular pathoanatomy of spinal dural fistulae
  • Identify intracranial and extracranial arterial vascular disease and identify major arterial variants and their significance in performance of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
  • Identify intracranial and extracranial venous abnormalities and their significance in performance of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures

Opportunity to Attend a Hands-on Clinical fMRI and Diffusion Tractography Course: May 2019

Clipboard01

Conference Dates: May 28-30, 2019
Credits: 23.5 CME and 3 SAM credits
Course Director: Andrei I. Holodny, MD

Conference Location:
Belfer Research Building
Weill Medical College of Cornell University
69th Street and York Avenue
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

Following an International Meeting From Home: Is It Possible?

Traditionally, annual international meetings are events to attend: a place to share a poster presentation or give an oral presentation, moderate a session, or simply to learn something new over multiple days. Preparation for the meeting includes planning the journey and choosing the most interesting lectures to attend. In recent years, it has also become easier to follow international meetings remotely, with improving availability of content online. The Radiological Society of North America and European Society of Radiology meetings, for example, allow online streaming of almost all the lectures, to help spread knowledge while increasing the visibility of the meeting worldwide.

Social media can also be a very useful tool; with the large availability of smartphones and tablets, many attendees now shares “live” snapshots of the meetings. Of the numerous types of social media services, Twitter is often the best suited for these purposes as it allows for live “micro-blogging” of events. For example, searching for the hashtag #ASNR18 allowed live following of many lectures during the last ASNR meeting, with numerous important take-home messages posted from multiple simultaneous talks.

Going deeper, one of the most tweeted lectures was “Review of Modern Classification and Nomenclature of Vasoformative Lesions” by Deborah R. Shatzkes, with near 110 tweets in almost 2 hours, including many pictures of the slides. The visibility of that lecture, and the whole session, got over the limits of the attending audience, reaching people worldwide (this author was actually enjoying the lecture from Italy).

Furthermore, Periscope, a Twitter spin-off app, allows live recording of a session, as during the Keynote lecture by Andy De Lao about the role of the Neuroradiologist in the 21st century.

Such sharing of content is an opportunity for all involved: the meeting organizers and the speaker can increase their visibility (and thereby their reputation) …
