This advanced course taught over 3 afternoons includes highly-specific daily programs that have been included to make a big difference on your radiological report.
The course will be based on around an individual and group case review followed by short lectures.
The first day will include some difficult topics on the foot and ankle such as the high ankle sprain, midtarsal sprain, different type of ankle impingement and the differential diagnosis of metatarsalgia.
The second day will look at some specific problems on the instable and microinstable shoulder together with the new concepts on the rotator cuff that should be reported following ISAKOS classification system.
The last day we will cover some specific problems of the knee that are frequently overlooked on radiological reports such as the posterior corners of the knee and the different types of meniscal tears following the ISAKOS system.
In addition, we will review important incidental findings, pseudo tumours and tumours found on joint MRI studies that radiologists should be aware of, in order to avoid important mistakes. We will also review normal variants that look pathological and some frequent benign tumours that might be as frequent as incidental findings, among others. Moreover we will emphasize which radiological findings indicate to us the more aggressive lesions.
With a limited number of 15 radiologists in this Online Fellowship, you will enhance and strengthen your own and each other’s knowledge in structured musculoskeletal MRI reading. Through the use of the ‘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 case reading sessions you will keep access to the cases.
If this Online Fellowship has been successful it will have provided you with knowledge that can help you address your normal clinical challenges, as well as future pursuits.
Maximum number of seats: 15
- Upgrade your knowledge of some specific MSK problems
- Become familiar with frequent benign lesions and when aggressive lesions should be suggested
- Discriminate normal bone and soft tissue variants from pathology
- Learn to do a structured report emphasizing those important key points for patient’s management
Programme will include
- Lectures on specific clinical problems on the ankle and foot; shoulder; knee; and tumours and pseudotumours
- Individual reading of selected cases with group case discussion
Level III - Subspecialisation training
Intermediate to advanced level, for radiologists with some Musculoskeletal MRI experience
The training platform runs entirely in the browser but the online PACS places a considerable load on the hardware and internet connection when viewing and loading cases.
