The target audience for this program will be radiologists, both in academic and private practice, seeking to increase their skills in musculoskeletal radiology, as well as orthopedists and physical medicine and rehabilitation practitioners interested in learning how imaging can best be incorporated into their practice. This course is also appropriate for trainees in these areas.
This course will offer a unique and innovative program in sports related injuries which is organized by body part and includes a review of relevant anatomy in each area. We will incorporate both anatomic dissections by respected members of the NYU orthopedic faculty as well as high level imaging performed in our state of the art facilities and described by the dedicated musculoskeletal radiology faculty. There will also be live on stage demonstrations of arthroscopic anatomy and correlation with imaging. A discussion of relevant sports related pathology will then ensue. All of the major joints will be covered in this comprehensive fashion. Other current and relevant topics to be covered will include cartilage repair techniques and their appearance on imaging, imaging athletic pubalgia, common sports specific injuries, nerve entrapment syndromes and musculoskeletal ultrasound.
