Date of Activity Release: August 27, 2018
Date of Activity Expiration: August 26, 2021

Target Audience:

The Foundation of the ASNR Symposium 2018 will focus on adding value and improving healthcare in neuroradiology. It will center on how neuroimaging adds value in many subspecialty areas, including brain, spine, head & neck, pediatric and neurointerventional procedures. The target audience will include practicing neuroradiologists, other radiologists charged with interpreting neuroimaging studies, radiology fellows andresidents, neuroscientists interested in the latest advances, and non-radiology colleagues whose practices include neuroimaging. Dedicated topic areas include screening and diagnostic neuroimaging, evidence based neurointerventional treatment, emergency neuroimaging use and usefulness, advanced imaging strategies, and healthcare reform.

About This Module:

This module is composed of following parts:
  • Evidence Based Medicine for PVA in 2018 Michele H. Johnson, MD
  • Evidence Based Medicine MILD returns to the Armamentarium Dan Nguyen, MD
  • Evidence Based Medicine for ESI Walter S Bartynski, MD
  • Evidence Based Medicine Basi-Vertebral Nerve AblationDan Nguyen, MD
  • Evidence Based Medicine HIFU for Facet Pain Lubdha M. Shah, MD

Upon completion of this module, participants should be able to:

Evidence Based Medicine for PVA in 2018Michele H. Johnson, MD

  1. Review the current literature regarding the clinical efficacy of vertebral augmentation techniques
  2. Evaluate the socioeconomic issues in vertebral augmentation for benign and malignant disease
  3. Identify indications and complications including cement leakage and development of secondary fractures

Evidence Based Medicine MILD returns to the Armamentarium Dan Nguyen, MD

  1. List the clinical symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis
  2. Compare minimally invasive lumbard decompression with traditional treatment options
  3. Summarize clinical data underlying use of MILD

Evidence Based Medicine for ESI Walter S. Bartynski, MD

  2. Review the current Evidence-Based Data on Efficacy of ESIs with focus on Inter-laminar and Trans-foraminal approaches.
  3. Evaluate evolving injection approaches that appear to enhance safety and efficacy of ESIs.

Evidence Based Medicine Basi-Vertebral Nerve AblationDan Nguyen, MD

  1. Evaluate the relationship of Basi-vertebral nerve in terms of involvement in sensory of low back pain.

  3. Evaluate the role of Interventional Spine practitioner in involvement in the care and introduction this possible new paradigm in treatment of chronic low back pain.

Evidence Based Medicine HIFU for Facet Pain Lubdha M. Shah, MD

  1. Review the clinical presentation, imaging appearance, and treatments of common and unusual causes of myelopathy in the adult patient.
  2. Describe the role of advanced imaging techniques to help confirm the diagnosis.
