The purpose of the session is to discuss radiologic-pathologic correlation of spinal tumors and tumor-like conditions to help demonstrate the importance of collaboration with neuropathologists and the usefulness of understanding the pathologic basis of disease when interpreting images. Developed in conjunction with the American Institute for Radologic Pathology
Define spinal tumors and tumor-like conditions and discuss their underlying pathophysiology.
Illustrate the usefulness of radiologic-pathologic correlation in order to accurately interpret images.
Identify the basic imaging findings used to diagnose and differentiate various spinal diseases.
