April 23rd, 2021 - April 22nd, 2024
Course Description and Intended Audience
Our understanding of CSF dynamics is expanding and leading to new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. This course is intended for practicing radiologists, neurologists, residents, and fellows and presents a multidisciplinary approach to the clinical evaluation, radiographic workup, and minimally invasive and surgical treatment of Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension and Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension.
This course uniquely brings together speakers with expertise in all aspects of these two diseases, from clinical presentation to routine and specialized head, spine, and vascular imaging to surgical, interventional spine, and minimally invasive endovascular treatments. Each topic is supplemented with patient cases.
