Purpose: There have been significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of many neurological diseases. The professional journals and society meetings have attempted to cover scientific advances in the peer review journals and at national and international meetings through consensus statements and publications.
This program will emphasize the evidence-based strategy for the current diagnoses, assessment and treatment of neurological disorders as well as cutting-edge research in novel therapeutics and imaging modalities. This symposium will discuss advancements in diagnosis and treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, normal pressure hydrocephalus and brain tumors. Nationally recognized faculty will discuss advances in neuromodulation and other novel neurosurgical approaches and will demonstrate how new technology affects our ability to diagnose and treat patients with progressive neurological conditions. We will approach issues of gender differences in multiple sclerosis and the role of copper in neurological disorders.
Target Audience: The conference is designed for neurologists and other health care professionals with an interest in the neurosciences.
Global Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:
- Define advances in imaging modalities for Parkinson disease.
- Examine the role of gender in treatment of patients with multiple sclerosis.
