This program is an update of current information on MR Imaging in the assessment of musculoskeletal disorders. Essential anatomy and physiology are emphasized that explain imaging findings in disorders of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot. MR imaging findings in the assessment of common problems in peripheral joints are compared to those derived from other imaging methods.
An in-depth assessment of imaging findings associated with foot and ankle disorders will also be presented on Saturday and Sunday, with emphasis on MR imaging and ultrasonography.
At the conclusion of this course, the participant should be able to:
• Assess MR images in patients with internal derangements of peripheral joints.
• Articulate the anatomic features fundamental to accurate interpretation of the MR imaging findings in these disorders.
• Formulate a reasonable differential diagnostic list and be able to identify the most likely diagnosis
• Understand the pathogenesis and imaging findings associated with common and important disorders that affect all joints, especially the ankle and foot.
The target audience is practicing radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, podiatrists, and other physicians interested in musculoskeletal disorders
