Holodny Clinical fMRI and Diffusion Tractography Workshop
December 16 - December 18
During most MRI procedures, there is no need for interaction between the administrator of the test and the patient. The situation is quite the opposite in functional MRI (fMRI), where the neurological status of the patient must be assessed and an appropriate paradigm must be selected based on the neurological assessment and prior MRI examinations. Additionally, the paradigm must be delivered to and successfully performed by the patient while in the MRI machine and analysis of the fMRI and diffusion tractography data needs to be made by the clinician. Proper performance of these tasks is often not addressed during residency and fellowship training or in annual scientific society meetings.
We invite you to this highly educational hands-on clinical fMRI and Diffusion Tractography Course in New York City to address these unmet needs. Clinicians involved in fMRI, including neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons and neurologists are encouraged to attend.
We will discuss the fundamental principles behind fMRI and diffusion tractography, optimal fMRI paradigms appropriate for the patient and clinical situation, how to deliver fMRI paradigms correctly and monitor the patient for adequate compliance, and much more.
