Optimize Diagnostic Skills

A comprehensive state-of-the-art update, UCSF Musculoskeletal MRI provides a review of pertinent anatomy and pathology of each joint, highlights the newest available sequences in cartilage lesion evaluation, and discusses optimized protocols with 1.5T and 3T MR units. Additional discussions cover bone and soft-tissue tumors, and bone marrow and muscle pathology. It will help you to better:

  • Use optimized protocols for imaging of the musculoskeletal system, including suppression of metal hardware in patients with joint replacements
  • Understand the MRI anatomy of the shoulder, digits, hip, knee and ankle
  • Identify abnormalities of the joints, muscles, bone marrow and cartilage on MRI and their clinical significance
  • Recognize common bone tumors with a pertinent differential diagnosis
  • Identify suitable protocols and recognize abnormalities of cervical spine trauma

* Date of Original Release: 4/30/2018

* Date Expire: 4/30/2021

Learning Objectives

After viewing this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Apply new knowledge to diagnoses and differentials for common musculoskeletal tumors
  • Identify and differentiate various arthritides
  • Identify osseous infections and mimics
  • Recognize normal joint anatomy and pathology, and avoid common pitfalls
  • Identify commonly-missed fractures
  • Implement ultrasound as a useful tool in musculoskeletal imaging
