2nd Annual Top Teachers in Head and Neck, Brain and Spine Imaging is organized by Educational Symposia (ESI) and will be held from Feb 11 - 13, 2021 at The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, Miami, Miami, Florida, United States of America. Target Audience: This meeting is designed for general radiologists who wish to gain a better understanding of head & neck, brain and spine imaging, as well as neuroradiologists desiring a comprehensive review of currently relevant imaging topics in the head & neck. Otolaryngologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and other physicians who care for patients with head & neck and neurologic disorders should also find this program beneficial. Accreditation: Educational Symposia designates this live activity for a maximum of 18.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. About the Meeting: The purpose of this CME program is to review fundamentals of head & neck, brain and spine imaging, as well as some advanced topics of increasing importance in clinical practice. Head & neck programming will focus on anatomy, inflammation and neoplasia of the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck and aerodigestive tract, and will additionally cover topics in orbital and skull base imaging. Brain lectures will include tumors, white matter disease, and both traumatic and non-traumatic emergencies, while spine lectures will cover degenerative, neoplastic and traumatic pathology. Each lecture will highlight imaging techniques, normal anatomy and common pathology with an emphasis on how the imaging findings directly affect patient management. Frequently missed diagnoses and strategies for error avoidance will be covered, as well. Educational Objectives: Attendees should, at the completion of this course,be able to: • Identify normal anatomy and common pathology of the suprahyoid and infrahyoid neck. • Appreciate the relevant findings in both pre- and post-operative imaging of upper aerodigestive tract malignancies. • Recognize types and imaging characteristics of infectious and neoplastic processes of the brain and spine. • Describe both traumatic and non-traumatic emergencies of the brain, spine and head & neck. • Integrate current stroke imaging protocols and discus evolving techniques utilized prior to treatment. • Utilize appropriate nomenclature for spine degenerative disease and appropriate technique for image-guided lumbar puncture. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
