E³ 30C-2
20 min
Metabolic and toxic encephalopathies and myelopathies
Massimo Caulo, Chieti / Italy
1. To review the most common imaging findings in metabolic encephalopathies and myelopathies.
2. To discuss the causes of these conditions (medications, alcohol, toxins, drugs, thiamine deficiency, hepatic failure, and electrolyte/glucose/osmotic imbalances).
3. To define Wernicke encephalopathy.
E³ 30C-3
20 min
Granulomatous disorders
Daniel Lyndon, London / UK
1. To illustrate how non-caseating granulomatous diseases involve the central nervous system (not including tuberculosis).
2. To review the imaging hallmarks of sarcoid in the central nervous system (CNS).
3. To review the imaging hallmarks of Langerhans cell histiocytosis in the CNS.
4. To discuss other (rare) disease conditions.
E³ 30C-4
20 min
Intracranial metastases revisited
Arian Lasocki, Melbourne, VIC / Australia
1. To demonstrate the imaging findings of intracranial metastatic disease and how they correlate with the mechanism of spread (haematogenic versus cerebral spinal fluid borne).
2. To become familiar with how intraparenchymal (cerebrum, cerebellum) metastases can reveal information about the primary tumour.
3. To discuss how to best diagnose dural and leptomeningeal metastatic spread.
