MSK Whistler Course
February 22 – 25, 2025

Course Description

The Program is a 4-day conference to serve to review and update current information on clinical MR and ultrasound imaging evaluation of musculoskeletal disorders with an emphasis on bone, muscle and soft-tissues. The role of imaging in the evaluation of specific patterns of sports-related musculoskeletal injury will be reviewed. Clinical-Radiologic Correlation of MSK abnormalities will be discussed.

Overall Goals and Objectives

At the completion of the course the participant should be able to:

  • Assess the technical requirements of MRI and Ultrasound to optimally assess patients with disorders of the musculoskeletal system.
  • Diagnose normal antimony, common variants and imaging pitfalls in the MR and Ultrasonographic imaging assessment of major joints.
  • Identify common forms of pathology involving the musculoskeletal system, their pathophysiology, implications for clinical management and imaging strategies in their staging and evaluation.
  • Comprehend the role and potential benefits/limitations of MR and ultrasound imaging in diagnosis and assessment of the musculoskeletal  system.
  • Hands-on Ultrasound Course: Identify and institute key strategies in ultrasound image optimization in evaluation of the MSK system in normal subjects, and successfully identify key structures in live scanning.

Target Audience

General radiologists involved in protocolling, imaging and assessment of Musculoskeletal injuries and disease.
