Let us notify you for next time


This advanced MSK imaging course taught over 3 afternoons includes highly-specific daily programmes that have been included to make a big difference in your radiological report.

The course will be based on individual reading and following group discussion of clinical cases and will be accompanied by relevant lectures on the specific topic including the relevant anatomy, the differential diagnosis and how to optimize the protocols.

The first day will include some difficult topics on the foot and ankle such as the high ankle sprain, midtarsal sprain, different types 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 the 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.

You will enhance and strengthen your own and each other’s knowledge in structured musculoskeletal MRI reading. After the case reading sessions, you will maintain access to the cases to keep practicing.

If this radiology course has been successful it will have provided you with knowledge that can help you address your normal clinical challenges, as well as future pursuits.

TMC Academy online fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. You 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 you can review them on your 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 radiology course is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
