Note: This is the "lite" edition of the app, containing all of the Normal Imaging and a small number of Cases.
Welcome to Nina, the Neuroimaging In Neurology App! This app contains more than 600 images collected from normal individuals and patients with a variety of neurological and neurosurgical disorders. The goals of this app are threefold:
* to learn normal neuroanatomy from normal imaging;
* to recognize the imaging features of the most common and classic neurological disorders; and
* to learn some key clinical points about each disorder.
The app is divided into two main sections:
1) Normal Imaging
This section contains Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the Brain, MRI of the Spine, Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA), Magnetic Resonance Venography (MRV), Computed Tomography (CT) of the Brain, and Conventional Angiography.
For most of the images, the native scan is shown without any labels. Buttons are shown labeled with anatomic areas of interest. Clicking on the button will cause the anatomy to be highlighted on the image. Also, clicking on the image itself will highlight the anatomy, display the name, and also light up the corresponding button. Users can quiz themselves by going through the names and the anatomy, in both directions.
In the full version of this app, this is the largest section, and consists of cases of patients with conditions most *commonly* seen in Neurology and Neurosurgery, and *not* the incredibly rare or esoteric. In the free version (this is the free version), you will get a preview of the content through a small number of cases.
On the top of each image is a brief narrative of how the patient presented and the reason that the imaging study was done. Below the narrative is the native image without any labels or arrows. Beneath each image is an explanation of the radiologic image, including the modality, the view, and the pertinent findings. This is followed by a brief review of some of the most important clinical points pertinent to the disorder.
