4th Annual CSF Disorder Symposium From Canvas to Clinic — Artistic(al) Management of Cerebrospinal Fluid Disorders

Providence, RI US
June 15, 2019

The 2nd and 3rd CSF Disorders Symposia in 2017 and 2018 introduced the intersection of Art, Science and Medicine for disorders of the cerebrospinal fluid. Artwork on display has illustrated visually the transformative manifestations of CSF disorders, such as connective tissue disorders, Chiari malformation, hydrocephalus, syringomyelia and others.

This initiative was supported by the Art League Rhode Island. Historically and traditionally, art has been applied to medicine and to surgery through surgical illustrating. However, there is “medical arts’ beyond this, and the Rhode Island State Council on Arts in collaboration with the Rhode Island Department of Health and RISD, have promoted the powerful role that the arts can play in health and healing, and have expanded the engagement of the arts in health in the state of Rhode Island. Artists, through their ability to create a visual impression, will foster in the compassionate physician and the engaging patient a deeper understanding of the suffering behind a disease. Beyond this, visual arts can support the “designing” of surgical strategies.

Painting and sculpting are two forms of the visual arts. Through the development of 3D models and 3D printing techniques, visual impressions and concepts will aid in surgical planning and “designing” surgical strategies and outcomes: Predicting the details of surgical findings can be clearly illustrated, and the potential outcome of an elected surgical procedure can be envisioned through sculpture and 3-dimensional artwork. 

The 2019 symposium will address the above outlined “artistic(al)” potentials and the implications on the diagnosis and management of CSF disorders as well as improving the outcome of the surgical profession. This includes enhanced education and teaching of medical students & surgical trainees.

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, residents, fellows, students, researchers, radiologic technologists, and engineers interested in advancing their understanding of how harmonizing art, science, and medicine can lead to implications on the diagnosis and management of CSF disorders as well as improving the outcome of the surgical profession.

This comprehensive program will include topics of interest to healthcare professionals who specialize in gastroenterology, genetics, neurology, neuropsychology, neuroscience, neurosurgery, nutrition, pain management, pediatrics, physical therapy, primary care, pulmonology, radiology, rehabilitation, rheumatology, and urology.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the clinical manifestation of CSF disorders and implications on health and medicine
  2. Discuss the concept of medical illustration in the traditional concept of arts in medical surgery
  3. Promote and describe the concept of Arts & Healing and it’s potential to improve surgical outcomes
  4. Promote the teaching aspects of artistic(al) medicine and management of health
  5. Discuss the concept of 3D artwork and 3D printing and the potential of disease modeling, surgical planning and outcome and teaching
