Episodes: 03 & 04 | Neuroimaging and Neuropsychology, Friends or Foes? - With Dr. Steve Correia (Parts 1 and 2)

Episode Descriptions: We interviewed Stephen Correia, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, a neuropsychologist with extensive research and clinical training in the use of imaging techniques. In this two-part episode, we cover clinical neuroimaging, with a focus on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. Topics include an overview of terminology, the use of imaging in clinical interpretation, whether neuroimaging is a threat to neuropsychology, how to train neuropsychologists in imaging, interacting with radiologists, the relationship between brain structure and function, recommendations regarding imaging, and more.

Learning Objectives:

  1.  Compare and contrast the various, and most common, neuroimaging sequences including Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) and Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI).
  2. Explain boundaries of a neuropsychologists’ scope of interpretation for clinical neuroimaging.
  3. Explain how the field of neuropsychology is affected by further advancements in clinical neuroimaging.
  4. Compile resources neuropsychologists can use to improve their skills in the interpretation of clinical neuroimaging.
  5. Discuss how to talk about neuroimaging in a neuropsychological report.
