This CME activity is jointly provided by Feinberg School of Medicine and Spondylitis Association of America.
The workshop will be conducted by an international panel of experts in musculoskeletal imaging. The program is aimed at both rheumatologists and radiologists and will cover both introductory as well as advanced MRI. In particular, the workshop aims at fostering collaboration and dialogue between rheumatologists and their local radiologists who are interested in musculoskeletal imaging. Participants will have an opportunity to conduct hands-on evaluation of images in a workshop format with video displays and work stations that will permit individual dialogue with the expert.
By the end of this workshop you will possess the skills:
Why a workshop with optimized imaging work stations is essential and why a PowerPoint presentation doesn’t cut it!
