ORGANIZERS: Christine Chung, M.D., Garry E. Gold, M.D. & Hollis G. Potter, M.D.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate-Advanced
Wednesday, 9 May 2012

This two-hour course will focus on the use of MRI in the emerging world, including:
Dedicated extremity MRI units;
Low field versus high field MRI; and
MRI versus Ultrasound and appropriate uses of each.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Describe dedicated extremity MRI systems, their advantages and disadvantages;
Compare low field and high field MRI for MSK applications; and
Recognize the role of MRI versus ultrasound in joint pathology.
These courses are aimed at radiologists, MR technologists and clinical support scientists who wish to incorporate the use of MRI into their practice and to know how evolving MRI techniques can aid in clinical problem-solving in the musculoskeletal system and impact individualized patient care.
