Changing the perspective: Using weight-bearing MRI for diagnosis and treatment of spine diseases

Wednesday, May 11th, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT  

Technological innovation is changing the landscape for treating spine instability conditions. Join us as we welcome world-renowned neuroradiologist Dr. Luigi Manfre, chairperson of diagnostic and interventional spine for the European Society of Neuroradiology, who will discuss the advantages of minimally invasive spine intervention techniques using weight-bearing MRI for the imaging and treatment of lumbar spinal canal stenosis and other spine instability conditions.

Learning points:
  • What is spine instability?
  • The disconnect between clinical symptoms vs. radiological findings
  • How weight-bearing MRI changes the diagnosis and treatment of lumbar spinal canal stenosis
  • Advantages of weight-bearing MRI
