Art & Technology in Fetal Imaging
4th Annual CSF Disorders Symposium: From Canvas to Clinic - Art & the Management of Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders
BROWN UNIVERSITY - PROVIDENCE, RI - JUNE 15, 2019
Dr. Francois Luks
describes the importance of medical illustration in our understanding of fetal and neonatal neurosurgery and neurological disorders. Rarely recognized today, art and advancing technology have played a hugely important role in our understanding of what the fetus looks like before birth. This is very important because it educates neurosurgeons who need to operate in-utero on the tiniest patients with scoliosis, Chiari malformation, and other congenital neurological disorders.
This presentation was made at the 4th annual CSF Disorders Symposium held at the Warren Alpert School of Medicine
of Brown University
. The title of the meeting was "From Canvas to Clinic" and identified the important connections between art and medicine. (2019)
