RANZCP Congress 2016: Neuroimaging Symposium

Playlist contributed by: Dr Gabrielle Matta

An MRI a day keeps the neuropsychiatrist at play

Neuroimaging (including MRI, SPECT, PET) is now an essential tool of the modern day neuropsychiatrist. The majority of patients seen within a tertiary referral neuropsychiatry service have been referred by general psychiatrists who have already undertaken imaging investigations, but who may lack the necessary experience to interpret imaging and to integrate imaging findings into the clinical formulation.

We will present a broad range of clinical cases across the range of neuropsychiatry (neurodegenerative, psychosis, epilepsy, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, metabolic, infective, autoimmune, traumatic). Clinical vignettes including patient videos and neuroimaging will be used as the starting point for a review of the role of neuroimaging within each group of disorders.

Neuroimaging has a defined clinical role in psychiatry and the day-to-day work of psychiatrists.
