Basic Neuroradiology – Chapter 8 – Edges of the Study

Don’t forget to look at the edges of the study. Sometimes the most important finding is there.

It’s a common mistakes radiologists to miss findings that aren’t in the center of the images or aren’t in the regular search pattern, so you have to make it part of your search pattern. For brains, you need to look at the skull base and the bones. For spines, be sure to look at the soft tissues of the neck, lungs, and abdominal organs and soft tissues.

The level of this lecture is appropriate for medical students, junior residents, and trainees in other specialties who have an interest in basic concepts of neuroradiology.
