• Core Curriculum: Imaging Anatomy for the Spine Interventionalist

    Includes Credits

    On-Demand Video

    Take your interventional skills to the next level with the diagnostic confidence you’ll develop from viewing the core lectures from the Imaging Anatomy for the Spine Interventionalist course. Earn CME credit at your convenience, without any time away from your practice, viewing streamed lectures and participating in a live Q&A. Over the years SIS has refined the curriculum for this special course, designed to help you gain a greater perspective of anatomy by combining cross-sectional (MRI and CT) and projectional (fluoroscopy) techniques—helping you perform spine interventions with greater precision and safety.

    BONUS 1-HOUR Q&A DISCUSSION In addition to the 6 hours of this courses' streaming lectures, we also bring you an hour-long Q&A discussion. See how our team of expert radiologists addresses a viewer's question on the risk presented by gadolinium-based contrast agents, and register to unlock the complete video set.

    Educational Objectives
    Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

    • Systematically evaluate a spine imaging study and describe normal anatomy;
    • Identify the specificity and sensitivity shortcomings of radiographs, CT and MRI;
    • Assess normal variants that may simulate symptomatic spine disease;
    • Recognize neural compressive lesions within a large spine imaging data set;
    • Interpret patient radiographic findings to develop a differential diagnosis in correlation with history, physical examination, and the patient’s spine pathology;
    • Explain challenges to safe injections and how to avoid pitfalls through analysis of spine imaging;
    • Utilize imaging in planning transforaminal access to maximize safety and efficacy.
