8:30 AM – 10:30 AM


William E. Palmer,MD, Christine B. Chung,MD, and Lawrence M. White,MD

Code: CM21


This session outlines the indications for in the assessment of musculoskeletal disease processes including tumors and internal derangements of joints, among other things. It will demonstrate how to optimize image quality of MR Imaging examinations, emphasizing protocol development as well as reduction of technical artifact using a case-based approach. The session illustrates a spectrum of clinically significant musculoskeletal pathology in the upper extremity using MR Imaging, focusing on diagnostic criteria and characterization that may alter the clinical disposition of the patient. Attendees will learn to develop an approach to the MR Imaging assessment of the postoperative joint.
