The Cost Effective Use of MR Neuroimaging in Neurology
Released: July 15, 2016 Expires: July 31, 2018 CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Laszlo Mechtler, MD, FAAN
16333

The cost of medicine has reached alarming rates. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) plays an important role in this new world of medicine that obligates physicians to become financial managers. While MRI is an essential component of a neurologic workup, it represents a high proportion of total episode-of-care (EOC) costs, and has been associated with overutilization. As a result, imaging centers can only survive to the extent they are able to develop cost effective approaches to neuroimaging.

In this CE Accredited Expert Forum Webcast, Dr. Mechtler will share his clinical insights, best practices and protocols for utilizing fast MRI methods in a cost effective manner in neuroimaging.

Following Dr. Mechtler's presentation, questions from the audience were taken and answered in a moderated Q&A.

Educational Objectives

  • Review clinical indications for post contrast MR imaging in pediatrics and discuss current GBCA utilization in the pediatric population.
  • Review the studies describing gadolinium retention in the body of pediatric patients following multiple GBCA doses.
  • Discuss relevant considerations when selecting specific GBCAs for post contrast MR imaging in pediatric patients.
