Radiologists who would like to become more confident with the interpretation of Imaging of Sport Injuries will find the fellowship useful.

The Fellowship in Sports Injury Imaging that TMC academy offers includes an overview of the common and less common presentation of Sports Injuries, as well as which imaging modality is best suited to image with, as well as to get to the correct diagnosis.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases from the TMC academy teaching file. After the individual case readings there will be an additional lecture followed by a ‘Questions and Answers’ session.
