About This MSK Radiology Conference

Join Dr. Donald Resnick and Dr. Stephen Pomeranz in this 5-part in-depth musculoskeletal radiology series on MRI of the Upper Extremities! 

Originally recorded live over the course of 5 days, Dr. Resnick and Dr. Pomeranz provide you with a practical overview on the use of MR imaging and MR arthrography in the assessment of the upper extremities with a focus on the most common articular disorders and internal derangements that are encountered daily in clinical practice. Drs. Resnick and Pomeranz are joined for guest lectures by Dr. Christine Chung and Dr. Megan Mills. 

What You'll Learn

Through targeted lectures and live scrolling case reviews, these radiology mentors will walk you through their search patterns and how to distinguish between normal variations and pathologic abnormalities. Learners will get an in-depth understanding of the anatomies of the upper extremities, common pathologies, and how to communicate your findings.

The program is structured to provide 3 hours of learning on specific extremities each day, including:

  • Shoulder MRI - Rotator Cuff, Superior Labrum including SLAP, Macroinstability, Throwing Shoulder 
  • Elbow MRI - Ligaments/Instability, Tendons
  • Hand & Wrist MRI - Ligaments/Instability, TFCC
  • Fingers MRI - Tendons, Pulleys, & Ligaments
  • Nerve Entrapment - All Upper Extremities 

View all topics!

Learn from two world-renowned masters of MSK MRI on upper extremity imaging.
