Essentials of Musculoskeletal Imaging


08:30 AM – 10:00 AM

Code: ES41


This session has three sections. The first is Stress Injuries, which defines the specific mechanisms of failure of normal bone due to chronic repetitive micro-trauma and its distinction from failure of abnormal bone in the setting of normal function with emphasis on radiographs, CT, and MR Imaging. The section also illustrates commonly encountered patterns of these injuries in different locations of the body focusing on imaging findings that are important in guiding therapy. The second section is Primary Bone Tumors. It provides an organized approach to the evaluation of primary bone tumors. The section reviews the radiographic appearances of common bone tumors. It also reviews basic concepts which aid in differentiating benign from malignant bone tumors. It highlights the advanced imaging characteristics of specific lesions. Third section is Hip MR Imaging, in which attendees will understand basic anatomy of the hip joint. The section describes the proper technique to evaluate the hip joint. It identifies common hip abnormalities including AVN, transient bone marrow edema, gluteal tendon pathology. Attendees will understand basic concepts of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and recognize labral and chondral lesions.
