Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the 2015 ESSR Annual Meeting and Refresher Course delegates will be able to:
1. Identify the anatomy of normal MSK tissues, variants and mimickers of disease
2. Identify morphologic and imaging characteristics of MSK disease
3. Understand the imaging techniques available for diagnosing musculoskeletal conditions and their appropriate use.
4. Recognise the techniques available to the radiologist and their appropriate use for guided intervention
5. Describe the specific pathology that accounts for the appearance of osseous and soft tissues in the setting of trauma, overuse, metabolic, inflammatory/autoimmune and neoplastic conditions on various imaging modalities
6. Recognize the relationship of specific biomechanical activities, injuries and treatments to the appearance of joints, bone, and soft tissues on imaging.
