Learning Objectives

Some patients have a need for surgical intervention to treat intracranial low flow states. Others will not benefit from this intervention.  In this talk Dr. Mikulis identifies specific appearances of the causes of intracranial stenosis.

After participating in this activity, learners should be able to:

• Understand the role of vaso reactivity in ischemia tolerance
• Discuss the role of carbon dioxide in vasoreactivity
• Be aware of the concept of territory at risk

Target Audiences

Diagnostic and interventional radiologists as well as other physicians who order and interpret CT studies.  Allied health professionals, IR fellows, radiology residents and medical students will also benefit from this course.
