This 12.25 hour Clinical Anatomy and Imaging (CAI) course has been
developed using a systematic evidence-based approach to address gaps in
physician knowledge and practice. The course will be beneficial in
understanding the imaging studies which guide interventions, the
correlation of imaging with pain syndromes, and the proper utilization
of imaging in patient care.
The course layout includes lectures, breakout group sessions, and
participant question time.
Lectures will include imaging techniques, basic anatomy of the spine
by region, diagnostic confidence, and degenerative pathology.
Breakout group sessions will allow attendees to examine numerous
spine cases with each instructor. This will provide an opportunity to
observe how different radiologists systematically examine large data
sets, filter out extraneous information, and focus on critical
findings. The cases will emphasize normal anatomy, normal variants
which may stimulate disease, and degenerative phenomena which may be
associated with typical axial and radicular pain syndromes.
Upon completion of this course
participants should be able to:
- Systematically evaluate a spine imaging study, and describe
- Identify normal variants that may simulate symptomatic spine
- Identify neural compressive lesions within a large spine imaging
- Interpret patient radiographic findings to develop a
differentialdiagnosis in correlation with history, physical
examination, and thepatient’s spine pathology
