Contrast Enhanced Neuro MRI: New Issues, New Indications (CE)

Program Summary

A review of the literature indicates an increased incidence of gadolinium deposition in the brain as a result of repeated contrast-enhanced MR imaging procedures. With a wide selection of gadolinium-based contrast agents available; imaging professionals must be aware of their chemical make-up when selecting the best agent for a particular study.

In this final CME/CE Accredited Expert Forum Webcast of our four-part series, Dr. Lawrence Tanenbaum reviews contrast-enhanced Neuro MRI with an emphasis on current practices and indications as well as a survey of manifestations of diseases on contrast-enhanced MRI of the brain and spine.

Following Dr. Tanenbaum's presentation, questions from the audience are addressed.
