Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Neurology Volume 04, Issue 06: Highlights from the 2012 Brain Trauma and the Athlete Conference.

The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of brain trauma. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Elaborate on the gross structural and molecular changes typical of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
2. Summarize the clinical and pathophysiologic features of CTE.
3. Differentiate CTE from degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer disease and frontotemporal dementia.
4. Recognize the types and severity of injuries that occur from different types of blows to the head.
5. Prevent second impact syndrome by counseling patients on the importance of complete recovery from the neurometabolic cascade that occurs after an initial concussion.

The original programs were presented by Ann C. McKee, MD, Professor of Neurology and Pathology, Boston University School of Medicine; Director, Neuropathology, New England Veterans Admin. Medical Center, MA, Robert A. Stern, PhD, Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery; Director, Clinical Core, Alzheimer’s Disease Center, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, Robert C. Cantu, MD, MA, Clinical Professor of Neurosurgery; Chair, Department of Surgery; Chief, Neurosurgery Service; and Director, Service Sports Medicine, Emerson Hospital, Boston, MA.
