Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Neurology Volume 04, Issue 03: Highlights from Neurology Update 2012.

The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and management of neuropathic pain and neurodegenerative dementia. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Examine patients with various types of neuropathic pain to determine the cause.
2. Treat neuropathic pain with agents that target the descending inhibitory pathway, peripheral sensitization, or central sensitization.
3. Use patient history, testing of mental status, neurologic examination, clinical evaluation, genetic tests, and biomarkers to diagnose Alzheimer disease.
4. Summarize pathologies associated with the different types of primary progressive aphasias.
5. Diagnose behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia and Lewy body dementia.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
