About This Course

Join Dr. Donald Resnick and Dr. Stephen Pomeranz in this Virtual Conference series on MRI of the Upper Extremities! 

Over the course of 5 days, Drs. Resnick and Pomeranz will 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 will be joined for guest lectures by Dr. Christine Chung and Dr. Megan Mills. 

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 (2 days) - Rotator Cuff, Superior Labrum including SLAP, Macroinstability, Throwing Shoulder 
  • Elbow MRI (1 day) - Ligaments/Instability, Tendons
  • Hand & Wrist MRI (1 day) - Ligaments/Instability, TFCC
  • Fingers MRI (½ day) - Tendons, Pulleys, & Ligaments
  • Nerve Entrapment (½ day) - All Upper Extremities 

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

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