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

"Good quality teaching with ample cases for practice.”
Dr. Cheung Pui Lam, Resident, Hong Kong (Fellow, Sep 2022)
"Excellent way of learning, easy to follow and so very useful in MSK MRI practice. Thank you for giving me so much confidence and finally I will do reports on the thumb, it has been an obstacle, and also I now have a much more clear picture of the glenoid in all planes. Roar is a true professional, also in doing fellowships, I´m very grateful, thank you!”
