WEEKEND EDUCATIONAL COURSE
Current Concepts in Musculoskeletal MRI
Organizers: Kimberly K. Amrami, M.D., Timothy J. Mosher, M.D.
Skill level: Intermediate - Advanced
Sunday, 4 May 2008
This one-day course will include a high level clinical imaging review as well as introduce topics in translational research for musculoskeletal MRI which are expected to have significant impact on clinical imaging in the near future. The course emphasis will be on high level technical development and emerging techniques and disease-specific protocols for qualitative and quantitative measurements of cartilage, bone, and muscle disease. Course participants will learn about state-of-the-art clinical practice for MSK MRI and be able to assess and implement applications for advanced MSK MRI in clinical practice.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
This course is designed for radiologists, medical physicists, radiology trainees, and graduate and post-graduate students interested in advanced musculoskeletal imaging and translational research.
