January 21 - 25
22nd Annual Musculoskeletal MR Course
This course is designed for general radiologists and allied health personnel involved in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders. Emphasis will be placed on the clinical applications of MR imaging, particularly for internal derangement of joints. Detailed review of the regional anatomy of articulations will be emphasized, as well as a review of standard imaging protocols for the major articulations. The use of MR for assessment of post-traumatic alterations of joints will be reviewed in detail for the major joints. The role of MR imaging in non articular disorders, such as trauma, osteonecrosis, and bone marrow disorders will be briefly reviewed. A practical approach to MR imaging of common musculoskeletal disorders will be emphasized.
At the conclusion of this course the participant should be able to:
♦♦ Identify the anatomic structures in the major articulations responsible for stability and recognize injury to these tissues on MR imaging.
♦♦ Have an effective search pattern for reviewing extremity MR in the injured patient based on knowledge of common mechanisms of injury.
♦♦ Differentiate common marrow disorders, including neoplasmas, based on the anatomic distribution, pattern and signal of MR marrow alterations.
♦♦ Update their site's MR imaging protocols to allow for improved efficiency and patient throughtput.
