The rapid evolution of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has impacted many aspects of musculoskeletal medicine and orthopedic surgery. The development of new MRI scanners and pulse sequences now allows for the clinical application of rapid 2D and 3D MRI of joints, high resolution MR neurography, multiparametric morphological and functional MRI of musculoskeletal neoplasms, and metal artifact reduction MRI of arthroplasty and orthopedic implants with unprecedented quality, detail, and speed. While those new and exciting clinical applications require a solid understanding of the underlying techniques, familiarity with current concepts and terminology of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine are equally essential. This activity will provide you with an improved understanding of the current possibilities of musculoskeletal MRI and its role in today’s practice. It will help to improve your practice skills and knowledge base from initial diagnosis to post-operative imaging. The program is a modern mix of pairs of interactive presentations and instructed live case reviews with MRI data sets displayed on your own devices. Experienced speakers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Balgrist University Hospital in Zürich, Switzerland will explain proven and new concepts first and then review illustrative cases interactively. The goal of this activity is to improve your ability to perform the best possible MRI exam and most accurate MRI interpretation for optimal patient care in your own practice.

Interactive Case Review Sessions

This course will feature 12 interactive case review sessions. After each lecture, you will review cases on your device together with the faculty. The cases will be available on a local PACS system that can be accessed via standard browser apps of your own handheld devices such as iphones, ipads, android phones and tablets, as well as PC and MAC laptops. Each faculty will review 5-10 cases and highlight protocol features, explain their structured approach, and illustrate abnormalities and their implications for patients care.

This activity is intended for radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, and MRI technologists.
