Course Description

This 4 day course is designed to bring the practicing physician interested in imaging disease of the CNS and extracranial head and neck a range of useful and state-of-the-art information regarding the performance of imaging exams, the typical and unusual imaging findings, and pathology of a broad spectrum of diseases. The course is in a beautiful, resort setting, with first-rate facilities and access to some of the nation’s finest shopping and culinary sites. Afternoons and evenings are your own to explore the region. The course has been structured to provide a wide range of lectures regarding common problems seen in an active practice.
