The course is designed to illustrate basic and advanced concepts and radiologic-pathologic correlation in Musculoskeletal Imaging in order to enhance practitioner knowledge and skills. Lack of understanding of the underlying pathology can lead to misinterpretation of radiologic images and the potential to overlook important complications such a neoplastic recurrence. The need for radiologic pathologic correlation is considered so important by the radiology community that the ACGME requires radiologic correlation as part of the training of radiology residents.
Musculoskeletal Imaging Categorical course will be virtual with both synchronous and asynchronous lecturers.
