Description

This course will guide you through the most common MR studies of the upper extremity, and will give you sufficient knowledge of MR anatomy and pathology to evaluate the most common injuries and findings of this region. Anatomical variants and pitfalls will be discussed. Findings particular for the growing skeleton as well as degenerative changes will be illustrated, and common sports injuries and stress reactions are extensively covered.

After completing this course you will have updated your knowledge on MSK MR imaging of the upper extremity and if you are a beginner, you should be able to report your first studies.

TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.

In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.

This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.

To continue growing your knowledge on MSK imaging, we recommend also following Dr. Pedersen's fellowship on Lower Extremity

Testimonials:

"Wonderful practical teaching presented in a concise way. There is minimal disruption in your daily work with the online fellowships.”
Dr. Henry Bartlett, Radiologist, Mossel Bay Radiology (Fellow, March 2022)

"Great instructor and course provider. No technical difficulties. Many cases where one gets a PACS system to individually scroll and think about each case before breaking it down with the instructor. Good amount of time to discuss each case.”

"After the fellowship I don't hate the labrum anymore :)”
