Course Purpose

This program is designed to demonstrate optimal diagnostic approaches to sports and non-sports-related musculoskeletal disorders, based on arthroscopic and radiographic correlations. The course will focus on optimal diagnostic approaches to gastrointestinal disease and how to optimize interpretation of PET-CT images, MRI of cardiovascular disease and gastrointestinal disease. Current topics such as the increasing uses of dual energy MDCT will be covered as they relate to abdominal imaging and all talks will highlight protocols that yield the best images at the lowest possible dose. Quality imaging issues in abdominal, cardiac,PET-CT and musculoskeletal imaging will be addressed by incorporating up-to-date protocols and techniques.

Educational Objectives

1. Diagnose musculoskeletal diseases, including marrow disorders. Diagnose osteoarthritis before morphological changes take place by using advanced cartilage specific MR sequences that are now available for clinical use including T2 mapping techniquess.
2. Given emerging technology, describe the value of using dual energy MDCT on all patients as it relates to abdominal imaging.
3. Describe patient preparation and performance of a standard cardiac MRI examination, as well as discuss commonly used routine protocols.
4. Based on advances in MR imaging criteria and PET imaging, effectively diagnose a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal, cardiac, abdominal and oncologic diseases.
5. Apply the imaging techniques that will allow for early diagnoses of small pancreatic cancers that can be surgically treated for a significant survival benefit.
6. Incorporate up-to-date imaging protocols and techniques in order to address quality imaging issues in abdominal, cardiac, PET-CT and musculoskeletal imaging.
