This CME activity provides radiologists with a practical overview of the use of MR imaging and MR arthrography in the assessment of synovial joints with a focus on the most common articular disorders and those internal derangements that are encountered daily in clinical practice.
Through targeted lectures and real-world case reviews, learners will get an in-depth understanding of the various types of human articulations and, with regard to synovial joints, the many diverse structures contained within them, including articular cartilage, subchondral bone plate, subjacent bone, synovial membrane, joint capsule, and intra-articular menisci, tendons, ligaments, and labra. Experts will walk through effective search patterns and how to distinguish between normal variations and pathologic abnormalities

- Describe the anatomic features of human articulations, the structures contained within them, and the abnormalities associated with specific articular disorders
- Detail diagnostic findings and differential diagnostic considerations for a wide variety of particular disorders, especially in synovial joints, that are encountered daily in clinical practices employing MR imaging
- Accurately identify and communicate those findings that require the immediate attention of the referring physician
- Recommend the appropriate application of standard MR imaging and MR arthrography to the assessment of common and uncommon disorders and derangements of synovial joints
