  • Coverage with Evidence Development for Amyloid Imaging: Current Status Webinar

    December 11, 2014 | Although the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) denied coverage to Medicare beneficiaries for any clinical use of the technology, they left the door open for future approval pending more data on the benefits of amyloid imaging. In a process known as “coverage with evidence development” (CED), the agency will pay for a single scan for people participating in clinical trials designed to gather evidence about health outcomes. It would accept short-term outcomes such as a change in medication or avoidance of unnecessary tests as sufficient evidence of a health benefit. Join Maria Carrillo, PhD, as she presents the status of the community’s efforts during the year following CMS’s initial decision to collect additional data and provide an update by CMS on CED.

  • American Society of Neuroimaging Annual Meeting: Neuroimaging for Clinicians, by Clinicians

    January 15 – 18, 2015 | Carefree , United States | The ASN’s meeting each winter is a gathering of the major leaders in neurology who practice neuroimaging and of those who train and educate our medical students, residents and fellows. Participants include attending physicians, fellows and resident physicians, nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants who work predominantly in the field of neurology. We anticipate roughly 160 to attend; the ASN’s meeting environment is very intimate and allows for direct interaction with the meeting attendees. This year, our meeting program consist of clinically relevant neuroimaging including imaging of Parkinson’s disease, MS, Headache, Stroke, Epilepsy and more. The trainings are highly interactive and include image interpretation. The goal is to help those in attendance to understand the opportunities and strategies for incorporating imaging into clinical practice and to learn from and influence scientists who develop clinical solutions.
