To Be Determined
This three-day educational course is designed to provide the practicing radiologist an intensive hands-on experience in the technique and the interpretation of MR imaging of the knee, shoulder, ankle/foot and hip. The course is focused toward the non-musculoskeletal trained radiologist responsible for interpretation of these often complex examinations. The attendee will have the opportunity to review and interpret over 100 musculoskeletal MR examinations under the supervision of expert faculty. Through participation in multiple scan interpretation sessions, including a detailed review of the key findings, each attendee will develop a higher level of expertise and confidence in evaluating MR of these various joints. All cases will be reviewed on a FUJI PACS workstation.
At the conclusion of this conference, participants will be able to:
- Identify the normal appearances of important anatomic structures on MR imaging of the knee, shoulder, ankle/foot and hip
- Identify abnormalities involving the menisci, cruciate ligaments, collateral ligaments, extensor mechanism and osteochondral structures on MR imaging of the knee
- Recognize important MR imaging features of rotator cuff tears, glenoid labral injuries and their clinical implications
- Detect common abnormalities of frequently injured tendons, ligaments and osteochondral structures on MR imaging of the ankle/foot
- Recognize important imaging features of avascular necrosis, labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement syndrome and traumatic injuries on MR of the hip
Please note: This course will offer the optional Workstation Introduction session at 7:00am on the first day of the course.
Attendees who complete a minimum of 100 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency stating they meet the Maintenance of Competence case requirement as specified in the ACR Practice Guidelines for the Performance of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for the knee, shoulder, ankle and hindfoot, and hip and pelvis for musculoskeletal disorders.
