The course covers MRI acquisition, normal anatomy, normal variations and approach to MRI interpretation of patterns of disease in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand hip, knee, ankle and foot. Each module is composed of an overview lecture followed by focused lectures. After each lecture, delegates view cases on PACS software alone or in small groups with surgical correlation. This allows for practical reinforcement of the fundamental principles in imaging interpretation. All lectures and cases are presented by either Donald Resnick, Professor of Radiology and Chief of Musculoskeletal Imaging at the University of California, San Diego or a dedicated musculoskeletal radiologist.
Lightbox Radiology Education courses include a variety of interactive sessions to cement the learning objectives. Our materials are both Mac and PC compatible and it is recommended that you bring your own laptop to your course or arrange to share a laptop with a friend during the interactive sessions.
