incontinence brain imaging
physicians, nurses, physical therapists, researchers, students, trainees

AIMS

  1. To review current knowledge about brain-bladder control network based on brain imaging studies to date.
  2. Provide basic information about use of imaging methods (fMRI and PET), analytical
    approaches and paradigms (infusion/withdrawal protocol) to study bladder control.
  3. Address specific topics:
  • Role of different brain structures in control of continence
  • Brain activity during urgency and role of aging in bladder control
  • Neurodegenerative diseases and incontinence
  • Brain imaging and behavioral treatment of incontinence.

OBJECTIVES

  1. Interactive discussion of presented material with audience; debating
    strategies for translation/integration of brain imaging research into
    clinical practice.
