VII. Neuroradiology Mini-Fellowship MRI Spine
The Mini-Fellowship in Neuroradiology is for those
doctors who have completed the MRI Credentialing program and want to
advance their training in both MRI Spine interpretation and
neuroradiology. This program is a hybrid of both live training
(one-on-one) with a "Harvard Trained" neuroradiologist after a rigorous
course of study of research findings in MRI applications, diagnostics,
technology and co-morbidities.
This 3-part program includes 8 hours of live training in New York
with Robert Peyster MD, CAQ, Neuroradiology. This course offers 40
chiropractic continuing education credits recognized by Cleveland
University-Kansas City, Chiropractic and Health Sciences and PACE
Recognized by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards. The
course is administered through the Academy of Chiropractic.
PART 1 Research Topics:
Modic Changes, Disc and Referred Pain, MRI and Cervical Musculature,
Kinetic MRI Images, Neurological Innervation, MRI and Injury Mechanisms,
Discogenic Pain, Annular Tears and Fissures, Asymptomatic Herniations.
The candidate must study 15 contemporary research articles related to
MRI physics, utilization, disc pathology, intradural pathology,
extradural pathology, morphology, sequencing, anomalies, anatomy and
take 15 examinations related to the above topics.
PART 2 Live Study:
The candidate must sit before Robert Peyster MD, CAQ, Neuroradiology
and review 60 MRI sequences (over 2500 images) and identify disc bulges,
circumferential, radial and transverse fissures, varices, and
herniations inclusive of the following types; protrusion, extrusions
(sequestered and migrated/comminuted extrusions). MRI sequencing for
accurate interpretation with contemporary nomenclature and reporting.
PART 3 Publish a Case Report:
The candidate must publish an original "case report" where MRI has
impacted either a diagnosis, prognosis or treatment plan in clinical
practice. This paper must include images, appropriate references and
will be peer-reviewed by a panel of peers for acceptance. The
Academy of Chiropractic will be responsible for having the paper
published. The candidate must author the article and utilize the
Case reports present the details of real patient cases from
medical or clinical practice. Cases may contribute significantly to the
existing knowledge on the field or showcase fewer novel results. The
report is expected to discuss the signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and
treatment of a disease. A goal of case reports is to make other
researchers aware of the possibility that a specific phenomenon might
Case reports are limited to 20 references and contain the
following sections: abstract, introduction, case presentation,
discussion, conclusions, references.
