TAST 2011 Satellite Workshop

TAST 2011 Satellite Workshop

Thursday, December 1, 2011

The New York Academy of Sciences


Preceding the Academy's conference Thrombolysis and Acute Stroke Treatment (TAST) in 2011: Preparing for the Next Decade, this satellite workshop will provide a combined tutorial on advanced neuroimaging (multimodal MRI, advanced CT, assessment of collaterals, penumbra, etc.) and ultrasound techniques. Physicians, ultrasound and imaging experts, technicians in ultrasound and imaging techniques, and other interested health care providers will explore the state-of-the-art imaging and ultrasound approaches to hyperacute stroke diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring.

Two 45-minute introductory tutorial lectures on CT/MRI and ultrasound/catheter angiography (including short demos), respectively, will be followed by an extended hands-on session where a few exhibitors will offer interactive demonstrations on ultrasound techniques. The workshop will close with an interactive, case-based session focusing on practical problem solving of several case studies relevant to neuroimaging and ultrasound approaches to hyperacute stroke diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring.
