Cardiovascular Instructions

Cardiovascular cases require histologic or culture proof to be accepted. Gross anatomic images are also helpful whenever available. Exception cases must be cleared by Dr. Frazier (see below). Complete anatomic and functional imaging evaluations (CXR, CT, PET CT, MRI, echocardiography, angiography) should be provided as appropriate. Any well-correlated case will be accepted. However, the following subject areas are of particular interest:

  • Acute aortic syndromes (intramural hematoma, aortic dissection, penetrating aortic ulcer)
  • Infiltrative myocardial diseases
  • Cardiomyopathies (dilated, restrictive, hypertrophic)
  • Myocarditis
  • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
  • Congenital heart disease (pediatric and adult)
  • Valvular heart disease
  • Cardiac or vascular neoplasia
  • Vasculitis (large, medium, small vessel disorders)
  • Vascular malformations
  • Pericardial diseases

Neuroradiology Categorical Course

August 6-9, 2018

This course will identify imaging characteristics of lesions involving the brain, spine, head and neck that allow for narrowing of the differential diagnosis, along with illustrating how the underlying pathology of the lesion contributes to its imaging characteristics.
