ESOR Foundation Course

MUSCULOSKELETAL RADIOLOGY | Online | December 7, 2022

Course information

This course is aimed at residents in their 4th and 5th year of training in radiology and recently board-certified radiologists interested in Musculoskeletal Radiology. It is strictly adhered to Level II of the European Training Curriculum. The course includes six topics consisting of 40 minutes of theory and case presentations followed by a live Q&A section after each session for interaction with the faculty members.

Learning objectives

  • To list the typical findings of traumatic and degenerative lesions of joints of the upper and lower limb
  • To describe the typical imaging features of common rotator cuff abnormalities
  • To explain the fundamental anatomic and imaging features of shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip and ankle, pertaining to instability and injury
  • To describe the typical imaging features of infectious, traumatic and tumoral lesions of the spine
  • To explain the typical imaging features of osteochondral lesions
