    • Develop a working differential for tumors of bone and soft tissues, and recognize if additional imaging or tissue sampling is justified
    • Evaluate the role of imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory arthritides like rheumatoid and spondyloarthropathies
    • Describe techniques to improve MR imaging in the presence of hardware, as well as the major areas of pathology diagnosed in patients post hip arthroplasty

    Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this CME activity, you will be better able to:

    • Determine how best to modify imaging techniques and protocols for all areas of Musculoskeletal MRI including: hip, knee, shoulder and foot, for improved therapeutic decision making
    • Develop a working differential for tumors of both the bone and soft tissues and recognize when additional imaging or tissue sampling is warranted
    • Evaluate the value of imaging in guiding diagnosis and treatment of such inflammatory arthritides as the rheumatoid and the spondyloarthropathies, as well as common musculoskeletal infections, including, but not limited to the septic hip and discitis
    • Describe techniques which can be utilized to improve MR imaging in the presence of hardware, as well as the major areas of pathology which can be diagnosed in patients status post hip arthroplasty

    Intended Audience

    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.
