Module 4 - Neuroradiological Applications of MRI - focuses on elements of MRI that are important to understand to be successful in performing high-quality diagnostic studies. The module includes self-instructional text, tables, scan protocols, and images, supplemented by a glossary, cross vendor lexicon, and a pretest to help identify specific learning needs.


At the conclusion of this activity, the reader will be able to evaluate different sequences that optimize imaging of different pathologies in the brain and spine; distinguish the different categories of disease processes that can affect the brain and spine; identify imaging characteristics of specific diseases of the brain and spine; describe diffusion and perfusion imaging; identify some clinical uses of diffusion-weighted imaging; explain how perfusion-weighted imaging is useful for clinical management in the setting of acute stroke; and list additional uses for perfusion imaging.

Refer to the beginning of individual chapters for learning objectives specific to each topic.
