25TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

NEUROIMAGING IN PEDIATRIC PATIENTS W/mTBI: CURRENT GUIDELINES & THE POTENTIAL OF ADVANCED NEUROIMAGING MODALITIES FOR RESEARCH & CLINICAL BIOMARKER DEVELOPMENT

Sorry… this video is no longer available.

This presentation will cover current CDC recommendations and the science of neurodevelopment in children and adolescents as it relates to advanced neuroimaging and brain injury. The applications of advanced imaging modalities, including DTI, SPECT, PET, and functional MRI, will be discussed in relation to efforts to develop objective, functional clinical biomarkers for pediatric traumatic brain injury. The presentation will then cover the role of neurovascular coupling in pediatric brain injury, as well as the effects of targeted multimodal rehabilitation in this vulnerable population. Observational and advanced imaging data from a brain injury rehabilitation center will be discussed in relation to symptom reporting and treatment challenges in children and adolescents, in addition to groundbreaking successes with brain injury treatment in pediatric mild traumatic brain injury and concussion patients.

After hearing from Dr. Alina Fong, you will leave able to:

1) Discuss the CDC’s 2018 Guidelines for current practices in pediatric mTBI and the neurodevelopment as it relates to structural and functional findings in children and adolescence; and,
2) Compare and contrast varied neuroimaging modalities and their application in pediatric patients and discuss the need for objective biomarkers and standardized testing in pediatric mTBI.

After hearing from Dr. Jaycie Loewen, you will leave able to:

1) Explain neurovascular coupling and it’s role in brain injury and how fMRI measures NVC and allows for the creation of clinical biomarkers; and,
2) Review data from a pediatric mTBI population demonstrating the severity of untreated post-concussion syndrome in children then discuss outcomes of fMRI-targeted multimodal treatment in pediatric patients.
