    In the resource list it talks about medical management in regards to imaging. The practice questions discussed some findings you would read in a report and applied them to different diagnoses. How in depth do you think we need to get with reading the actual images? Do you feel it is enough to understand what conditions each type of image is indicated for, or should we practice how to read for instance a CT scan, MRI, etc.

    Thank you!

    I don’t think you need to spend a ton of time learning to read neuroimaging studies. Recognizing the type of image (i.e., CT, MRI), when each type may be indicated (i.e., acute, sub-acute), and identifying major abnormalities (e.g., severe midline shift) is likely sufficient.
