Latest Activity: Nov 23, 2010
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 inter-pretation of these often complex examinations. The attendee will have the opportunity to review and interpret over 100 mus-culoskeletal 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. Preparation material for this course can be found here. (registration required)
