Oct. 8th CLE: Imaging Traumatic Brain Injury with CT and MRI
Your client has a brain injury and you have the MRI films, what do you do now?
Join Dr. Murray A. Solomon to gain some tools to help you navigate the complexities of the brain MRI and get the best diagnosis for your client.
- Learn brain anatomy relevant to traumatic brain injury
- Learn about radiologic imaging techniques for evaluating brain injury:
- SWI (susceptability weighted imaging for microbleeds),
- NeuroQuant (brain volumetric measurements),
- ASL (atrial spin labeling for document alteration in vascular blood flow), and
- Quantitative DTI (mathematical evaluation of damage to major nerve tracts in the brain).
Dr. Murray Solomon graduated from UCSF School of Medicine. He was a resident in diagnostic radiology at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in St. Louis which is part of the Washington University Hospital complex. Dr. Solomon returned to UCSF for a fellowship in Neuroradiology and MRI. In 1984, he helped open the first MRI center between San Francisco and Los Angeles, in San Jose and was scanning Stanford patients before Stanford had a magnet. In 2004, Dr. Solomon helped site the first outpatient 3T MRI scanner in Northern California. Dr. Solomon currently works at Insight Los Gatos MRI in Los Gatos, which houses both a standard bore and a wide bore 3T, designed for obese, claustrophobic, and anxious patients.
