ONLINE Musculoskeletal MRI Fellowship – Upper extremity

7 - 9 Sep 2020

100% Online

Level II - General radiologist

11 EACCME CME Credits

The purpose of this short online fellowship is to discuss different common MSK topics and start practising immediately by reading selected cases together with the mentor. The upper extremity module discusses the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand including the fingers. The selected cases for reading are from our own teaching file and allow the participant to practice with common cases that may appear in your daily worklist.

Let us notify you for next time


The MSK fellowship that TMC academy offers includes an overview of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hands and fingers in three consecutive 4-hour sessions in the late afternoon and early evening. There is a second short online fellowship covering the lower extremity.

Every day two lectures of approximately one hour will supply you with knowledge that you consecutively apply during the case reading session with group case discussion. In the communal case reading session we will use a reporting template to help you navigate and write adequate reports.

In this fellowship with a limited number of 15 radiologists you will enhance and strengthen your own and each other’s knowledge in structured musculoskeletal MRI reading. With the use of Zoom platform, interactivity will be established and the use of a webcam is encouraged to enhance the creation of a virtual reading room. After the reading session together you keep access to the cases.

If this online short fellowship has been successful it has provided you with knowledge that can help you address your normal clinical challenges, as well as future pursuits. At the end of the program you will be able to identify and report on common Musculoskeletal MRI and pathology in daily practice without difficulty.

Learning objectives

  • Upgrade your knowledge of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers through dedicated lectures.
  • Become familiar and feel confident with basic and early advanced MSK pathology as encountered in daily practice through knowledge and case reading sessions

  • Learn to construct an adequate report through structured reporting

Programme will include

  • Lectures on common pathology of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand & fingers
  • Reading of selected cases with group case discussion


Level II - General radiologist
Radiologists with little or with early advanced knowledge in MSK pathology and who would like to become more confident on reporting musculoskeletal MRI will benefit most from the fellowship.
