PRECOURSES—Additional Fee Required

Spine Imaging and Anatomic Correlation
Friday, 21 October
Select From One of Four 1 ½ Hour Offerings
9:00–10:30; 10:45–12:15; 14:15–15:45; or 16:00–17:30

Instructors: Timothy P. Maus, MD; Frank Willard, PhD

Take advantage of this great opportunity to see the structures we target with interventional spine procedures, and vulnerable structures we must avoid, on expertly dissected cadavers.

The anatomic reality will be correlated with the imaging representation. Dissected and sagittally sectioned cadavers and multi-planar imaging datasets will allow the attendee to develop a greater three–dimensional understanding of the keys to success and the potential pitfalls of lumbar and cervical procedures. This unique, small-group offering will feature an open forum dialog between Dr. Timothy Maus and Prof. Frank Willard. There will be four 1 ½ hour offerings with a maximum of 10 attendees per rotation. Don’t miss out on this offering. Space is limited and will fill. You do not need to be a Member to attend this session.

Registration will be restricted to 10 attendees per 1.5 hour session.
