CE for this activity will not be available after this date.
Conference Level: CompetentOverview This presentation is relevant to our diverse NP audience because it will enhance an area of their clinical practice not often or deeply covered in NP education or in practice. The numbers of patients with cerebrovascular disease and traumatic injury are increasing. Thus, providers in acute and primary care should be armed with the foundational knowledge of appropriate neurological imaging and evaluation. This interactive presentation will engage attendees in a scintillating review of the main types of imaging used for a neurological work-up in. This will include a review of plain X-rays, CT imaging (including CT angiography), MRI (functional, navigational for planning, spectrography), MR angiogram, MR venogram and conventional diagnostic angiograms. In addition, I will use a case-based approach to illustrate a review of the indications for when to order such imaging, and a review of imaging findings. Attendees will be engaged via audience participation software for immediate feedback and an enhanced learning environment.
