MR Evaluation of the Athlete
Clinical Intensive Education Option
ORGANIZERS: Christine Chung, M.D., Bernard J. Dardzinski, Ph.D., & Hollis G. Potter, M.D.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate
Sunday, 8 May 2011

In this one-day course radiologists with extensive experience in imaging of the musculoskeletal system represent the majority of the faculty. The course leverages the use of two highly experienced and subspecialized orthopedic surgeons who will discuss clinically relevant issues in the athlete and indications for MRI. Further they will emphasize how those findings guide treatment. Radiologists will then discuss imaging anatomy, diagnostic criteria and methods of injury characterization. The interaction between these clinically based talks and radiologists provide an optimal situation for solidifying the clinical presentation of the injured athlete with the MRI findings. The course will be inclusive of sports injuries across several articulations.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Identify common clinical presentations of the injured athlete and indications for imaging;
Select appropriate MR protocols for specific clinical needs;
Determine various diagnoses on the basis of MR findings in the athlete; and
Identify MR findings that are important in characterization of sports injuries and that may alter treatment.
