Clinical Intensive Education Option
Hip Bone & Soft Tissue Pathology: Case Based Teaching
ORGANIZERS: Christine Chung, M.D. & Lynne S. Steinbach, M.D.
SKILL LEVEL: Basic to Intermediate
Monday, 9 May 2011

This course will demonstrate relevant hip abnormalities using a case-based approach. Typical examples will be used for demonstration of adequate imaging protocols, followed by cases useful for the discussion of indications for MR imaging. The most relevant abnormalities will be covered, including commonly encountered osseous and soft tissue abnormalities of the hip (excluding that of femoroacetabular impingement). Current topics from the literature including rotator cuff pathology of the hip, metallosis and bisphosphonate induced insufficiency fractures will be addressed.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Describe the MR appearance of the most relevant abnormalities of the hip joint and its surroundings;
Describe the differential diagnosis of such abnormalities; and
Identify four hip abnormalities which radiologists should not miss.
