Brain and Spine - Neuro MRI Fundamentals

Over the course of 10-weeks, students will receive 5 cases per week and create full reports to be submitted weekly. Reports are reviewed by a fellowship trained radiologist who provides personalized feedback to help you improve in your areas of need. Students will participate in three, 60-minute virtual lectures with an opportunity for Q&A with renowned neuroradiology subspecialists.

This remote program was designed for the busy radiologist, allowing students to work at their own pace on a weekly basis. All lectures and course material are available on-demand.

Course topics: vascular, infections, traumatic, acquired, metabolic, idiopathic, neoplastic, congenital, drug-related

Live Lectures Details


Note: Lectures below will be recorded and available on demand in the course if you are not able to attend it LIVE within 2 weeks it is offered.

1.

Topic: WHO 2021 Classification of Brain Tumors: What is new and what is gone


Description: This lecture will provide examples of entities which are new or reclassified according to the latest publication of the WHO released in 2021. We will also discuss nomenclature changes and review tumor types which have been removed from the classification. Where important, genetic or molecular markers will be discussed.


Day / Date: Friday, January 14th

Time: 09:00AM - 10:00AM ET

Instructor: Dr. Joshua Nickerson

2.

Topic: Extradural Spinal Masses and Mimics


Description: Although degenerative disk disease is the most common extradural category of disease to affect the spinal column, there are numerous vascular, infectious, traumatic, neoplastic and congenital lesions that may also compress the thecal sac. These include the more common lesions as metastatic or primary bone tumors, diskitis-osteomyelitis complex, epidural hematomas and abscesses, and congenital cysts. This lecture will review the non-DJD entities with an eye towards how to distinguish among them and how to work the lesions up.


Day / Date: Friday, February 18th

Time: 09:00AM-10:00AM ET

Instructor: Dr. David Yousem

3.

Topic: Toxic and Metabolic Brain Disease


Description: This lecture will provide a paradigm through which one can narrow down the differential diagnosis when faced with a pattern of abnormality on CT or MRI which suggests a systemic insult resulting from toxic exposures or from inborn errors of metabolism. Through illustrative cases, participants will incorporate acuity, patient demographics, and sequelae of therapy to arrive at the most likely causes of injury for these often challenging image studies.


Day / Date: Friday, March 11th

Time: 9:00AM ET -10:00AM ET

Instructor: Dr. Joshua Nickerson


On-Demand Recorded Lectures with Dr. Yousem and Dr. Mukherji


1.

Topic: Neurodegenerative Disorders


Description: There are many disorders of the Central Nervous System that lead to cognitive decline or an acute change in mental status.Some of these have unique neuroimaging findings that lead to the radiologist suggesting a specific diagnosis. This lecture will focus on a review of traditional dementing disorders (Alzheimer's disease, Frontotemporal dementias, Parkinson's disease) but will also provide tips for those reversible causes of cognitive decline that can be suggested based on brain MRI.


Instructor: Dr. David Yousem

2.

Topic: Anatomy and Pathology of the Central Skull Base


Description: This talk reviews the normal anatomy of the central skull. We will also describe common neoplasms, infections and infectious processes that involve the central skull base.


Instructor: Dr. Suresh Mukherji

3.

Topic: Lesions of the Temporal Lobe Only


Description: There are vascular, infectious, traumatic and neoplastic lesions that populate the temporal lobe moreso than any other area of the brain.Many of these lesions are distinguished by their unique MR or CT features. This lesson will provide the salient imaging findings that will define a specific diagnosis based on history (age, trauma), clinical signs (fever, seizures, somnolence) and MR/CT characteristics (calcification, dural attachment, cyst, neuronal migrational anomaly).


Instructor: Dr. Yousem

MRI Online's Remote Neuroradiology Fellowship was definitely the most useful and productive educational program that I have ever joined. It is a very well organized, all-inclusive teaching package with no external sources needed. Personalized feedback on my reports is invaluable. Weekly interactive teaching sessions with (Dr. Yousem) kept us motivated and allowed us to watch closely how such a talented Neuro-radiology professor would approach his cases, giving us great tips for both MRI Neuro-Anatomy and Pathology. This fellowship certainly increased my reporting confidence, speed, accuracy and took my day-to-day practice to the next level.
