What part of the body engenders more fear in a radiologist than the head and neck? Eliminate your concerns in this three-day course taught by giants in the field of head and neck radiology.
Conducted by Nafi Aygun, MD, the course addresses the difficult anatomy and pathology of the head and neck. Material includes CT and MR imaging with advanced application techniques also applied to ultrasound and PET/CT. Emphasis is placed on the TNM staging of cancers of the aerodigestive system, the intricate anatomy of the sinonasal cavity, lesions that arise from and cross the skull base, and deep-space tumors of the neck. Plus, discover the most common sources of anxiety: lesions of the temporal bone, the brachial plexus and the teeth.
Attendees will learn the appropriate workup of incidental thyroid nodules, enlarged lymph nodes and cysts in the head and neck. This is the definitive course that will shore up a weak area in nearly every radiologist's repertoire. Sixteen 30-minute lectures will create the foundation for reviewing over 180 head and neck cases during this seminar.
