An Acclaimed Review of Musculoskeletal MR Imaging

This comprehensive, state-of-the-art update focuses on different aspects of musculoskeletal MR imaging. Along with a review of the anatomy and pathology of each joint, speakers discuss evaluation of cartilage lesions and the newest sequences, optimized protocols with 1.5T and 3T MR units, and differential diagnoses of bone and soft-tissue tumors. Special attention is directed to bone marrow, muscle and tendon disorders, and nerve entrapment. This program will help you to better:

  • Relate MR image findings of the shoulder and knee to clinically relevant orthopaedic disorders
  • Develop optimized protocols for imaging of the musculoskeletal system, including protocols used to suppress metal hardware in patients with joint replacements
  • Understand the MRI anatomy of the shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle, fingers and toes
  • Identify abnormalities of the joints, muscles, bone marrow and cartilage on MRI and their clinical significance
  • Recognize common bone tumors with a pertinent differential diagnosis
  • Identify suitable protocols and recognize abnormalities related to cervical spine trauma
  • Understand peripheral nerve imaging protocols and pertinent findings
