Hvor klinisk betydende er MR diagnoser?
Hvis du også kan være i tvivl, er kurset her måske noget for dig.
Some abnormalities found on spine MRI scans are of no clinical significance and others are only important if they can explain the patient’s current clinical signs and symptoms. The relationship between abnormalities on spine MRI scans and certain treatment outcomes is surprising and often disappointing. Additionally, the inter-examiner reliability of interpreting some abnormal MRI findings is not as good as you might think.
These issues will all be explored using chiropractic and medical cases to help clinicians better understand the significance of MRI findings and to use the images to better manage their patients.
Indhold og mål
This course will give you the tools to distinguish between serious/significant spine MRI abnormalities and insignificant abnormalities.
It will help you clarify the relationship between specific spine MRI abnormalities and patient signs and symptoms and give you a clearer picture of when MRI or CT is the most appropriate imaging modality.
You will be introduced to the literature and to cases comparing specific MRI abnormalities with outcomes from chiropractic spinal manipulation and other treatments.
