About The Meeting
This CME activity provides an update of current information on MR Imaging in the assessment of musculoskeletal disorders. Essential anatomy, physiology and pathology are emphasized that explain imaging findings in disorders of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers. MR imaging findings in the assessment of common problems in upper extremities are compared to those derived from other imaging methods.

Target Audience
The target audience is practicing radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, podiatrists, sports medicine physicians, and other physicians interested in musculoskeletal disorders. Radiologic technologists who perform these types of procedures will also find the program beneficial.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Assess MR images in patients with internal derangements of the upper extremity joints.
  • Articulate the anatomic features fundamental to accurate interpretation of the MR imaging findings in these disorders.
  • Formulate a reasonable differential diagnostic list and be able to identify the most likely diagnosis.
  • Comprehend the pathogenesis and imaging findings associated with common and important disorders that affect the upper extremities.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Course Organization
This program is planned and organized by Educational Symposia, a leader in continuing medical education since 1975.

Educational Symposia appreciates our corporate supporters and exhibitors. A list of industry supporters will be provided and acknowledged at the meeting.
