ESOR Course on Musculoskeletal Radiology | July 26 & July 28, 2023

Course information

​This course is aimed at last-year residents and board-certified radiologists interested in musculoskeletal imaging. This intense one-day program is articulated on imaging strategies for the musculoskeletal system, with emphasis in diagnostic issues and pitfalls, and impact of imaging on patient management. It is designed to update knowledge on the role of imaging modalities, focusing on bone tumors, on inflammatory diseases in adults and children and on joints (impingement syndromes and ankle injuries). In addition, there is a special focus on ultrasound guided intervention.

Renowned European and Philippine lecturers will ensure a high-quality teaching program, combining lectures and interactive cases.
