Course Description:

This course is based upon material published by the journal Expert Opinions in Medical Diagnosis, which is available as an open access article on the National Institute of Health Public Access website.

The course material summarizes describes the currently available brain imaging techniques and focuses on the brain imaging methods functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET). Those techniques have helped describe alterations in brain circuitry in AN and BN that related to anxiety and reward processing. Novel computational models help further define brain function in relation to particular neurotransmitters.  According to the author, with the refinement of imaging hardware as well as improved models that describe brain function we will get closer to our aims to not only better understand the neurobiology of those disorders, but predict illness development, treatment response and long term prognosis.

This course on brain imaging in the diagnosis of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa is designed for psychologists, clinical social workers, professional counselors, and nurses who do clinical work. 

This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to enhance their knowledge of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. The course material includes an introduction to brain imaging as well as insights into how it may apply to the diagnosis and treatment of anorexia and bulimia. 

This course is designed for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.  It contains medical terminology and a discussion of brain imaging and is appropriate for clinicians who has some knowledge of the utility of these medical tests.
