ACR-MSK MR — Commonly Imaged Joints
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 nonmusculoskeletal-trained radiologist responsible for interpretation of these often complex examinations.
The attendee will have the opportunity to review and interpret over 100 musculoskeletal MR examinations on a FUJI Synapse workstation 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.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
Identify the normal appearances of important anatomic structures on MR imaging of the knee, shoulder, ankle/foot and hip.
Identify abnormalities involving the menisci, cruciate ligaments, collateral ligaments, extensor mechanism and osteochondral structures on MR imaging of the knee.
Recognize important MR imaging features of rotator cuff tears, glenoid labral injuries and their clinical implications.
Detect common abnormalities of frequently injured tendons, ligaments and osteochondral structures on MR imaging of the ankle/foot.
Recognize important imaging features of avascular necrosis, labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement syndrome and traumatic injuries on MR of the hip.
