Clinical Skills Workshop: Optimal Use of Neuroimaging in Diagnosing and Treating Epilepsy

12:45 PM-2:15 PM
Neuroimaging is an essential tool in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy. It has opened a window on the pathological substrate underlying epilepsy, ranging from subtle gliotic lesions and cortical malformations to larger, more extensive structural disturbances. This workshop will review the techniques used to diagnose epilepsy, emphasizing both basic MRI customized for epilepsy and advanced neuroimaging techniques. We will review a rational approach to the use of neuroimaging and highlight techniques that enhance diagnostic ability. This workshop will also include a practical, hands-on session with review of pre-surgical cases.

Clinical Skills Workshop: Pearls of VideoEEG Monitoring

12:45 PM-2:15 PM
Video EEG monitoring is utilized to establish a diagnosis of epileptic seizures in contrast to other events such as psychogenic nonepileptic seizures. Reading video EEG recordings in contrast to routine EEG is a special skill and requires also interpretation of the video data. Not in all cases of epileptic seizures is the EEG helpful to identify an EEG as epileptic or not. This workshop will educate about identification and classification of events on video EEG monitoring and enhance skills about video EEG interpretation. It will informs about technical and diagnostic

Clinical Skills Workshop: Treating Patients with Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures

12:45 PM-2:15 PM
Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) are prevalent and disabling and are often identified in seizure monitoring units. Neurologists readily diagnose PNES, but the majority of providers do not feel equipped to treat patients with PNES. Psychogenic NES present in adults and children with neurologic signs, psychological stressors and comorbid psychiatric disorders. For years, neurologists, psychiatrists and psychologists have accumulated data about NES phenomenology, epidemiology, risks, comorbidities, and prognosis. The role of the neurologist and mental health providers in the diagnosis and management of these patients will be discussed, and common obstacles
