This activity offers CE credits for:
1. Physicians (CME)
To understand the contributions of structural neuroimaging, functional neuroimaging, and psychometabolomics in the identification of markers for suicidal behavior
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
1. Understand how structural neuroimaging, functional neuroimaging, and psychometabolomics are used to identify markers of suicidality
2. Describe the evidence for using structural neuroimaging, functional neuroimaging, and psychometabolomics
This continuing medical education activity is intended for psychiatrists, psychologists, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other health care professionals who seek to improve their care for patients with mental health disorders.
