What’s a webcast?
It is a transmission of media (video) over the Internet using streaming technology. This means that at a set time you will be able to go to a specific Internet site, watch a taped video, and then send your questions online where a physician will be available live to answer your questions. The webcast will contain information about the ET diagnosis process, treatment options, and research updates.
What will the webinar cover?
Dr. Dalvi’s webcast presentation will explain what ET is, the causes of tremor, how it is diagnosed, what role genetics play, and the differences between essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease (PD). The webcast will also cover common medications, surgical treatments, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery, current ET research and new developments undergoing study, such as Focused Ultrasound (FUS) Surgery. His presentation also covers FDA-approved DaTscan, a new diagnostic tool. After the presentation, Dr. Dalvi will respond to questions submitted by viewers.
