This ankle fellowship will cover the entire ankle joint and its surroundings, including joint surfaces, bone, ligaments and tendons. It will in depth explain how to understand and how to report MRI studies of the ankle, emphasizing common and uncommon complaints and findings. Injuries, degeneration, stress changes and normal anatomic variants will be covered – enabling the attendees to report ankle studies with confidence. This is a comprehensive fellowship, with lectures and case sessions, in a smaller group with close interactions with an experienced lecturer and MSK radiologist.

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.

Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

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.


"Great course with a high practical impact.”
Dr. Damian Szydelko, Unilabs Norway (Fellow, Nov 2022)

"This was my fourth MSK fellowship with TMC academy and unsurprisingly it was as good as the other three. I highly recommend this course because of the dedication of the tutor, his detailed approach and excellent selection of cases. Thank you, Dr Pedersen! Thank you TMC Academy!”
Dr Katerina Tsokova, United Kingdom (Fellow, Nov 2022)

"I will recommend this fellowship, which I found very useful in my everyday practice as an MSK-radiologist. The lectures was to-the-point, very nicely presented, and there were a lot of cases to illustrate all the pathology. I would like to attend more of these fellowships.”
Dr. Ann Ellingsen, Norway (Fellow, Nov 2022)

"Great fellowship, and excellent teaching. I prefer that the lecturer does most of the talking as in this case so that we learn more, questions in the chat box were very useful. The discussion was open, and everyone benefited. Many thanks, we covered 99.9% of the ankle problems in our daily practice.”
Dr. Anees Jwad, Radiologist, United Kingdom (Fellow, Nov 2022)
