Advances in Pediatric Neuroradiology

Society for Pediatric Radiology

This course will provide pediatric and general radiologists with an opportunity to do the following:

  • Summarize and provide an overview of the state-of the art neuroimaging modalities used in pediatric neuroradiology to evaluate pediatric Central Nervous System (CNS) disease
  • Select the appropriate modality or modalities in evaluating a suspected or diagnosed case of pediatric CNS disease
  • Evaluate neuroimaging of pediatric CNS disease as it relates to understanding normal brain development and maturation
  • Apply and describe Magnetic Resonance (MR) advanced imaging techniques optimized for children with neuroradiologic diseases to advance diagnosis and improve management
