About This MSK Radiology Conference

Join Dr. Donald Resnick and guest faculty in this Virtual Conference series on MRI of the Pelvis and Lower Extremities!

Over the course of 5 days, the faculty will provide you with a practical overview on the use of MR imaging and MR arthrography in the assessment of the pelvis and lower extremities with a focus on the most common articular disorders and internal derangements that are encountered daily in clinical practice.

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 anatomy of the pelvis and lower extremities, common pathologies, and how to communicate your findings. The program is structured to provide 4-5 hours of learning on specific extremities each day.

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from world-renowned masters of MSK MRI and ask them your pressing questions on lower extremity imaging.

All Conference attendees will also receive access to the recording of the conference proceedings.
