ACR2016VM38 - ACR Education Center: MSK MR

May 17, 2016 1:30pm ‐ May 17, 2016 3:00pm


The purpose of this session is to provide the practicing radiologist an experience in the technique and the interpretation of MR imaging of the knee, shoulder, ankle/foot, and hip. It is focused toward the non-musculoskeletal trained radiologist responsible for interpretation of these often complex examinations. Developed in conjunction with the ACR Education Center ™

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe how radiology practices/departments position themselves as a result of healthcare reform.Identify the normal appearances of important anatomic structures of MR imaging of the knee, shoulder, ankle/foot and hip.
  2. Identify abnormalities involving the menisci, cruciate ligaments, collateral ligaments, extensor mechanism and osteochondral structures of MR imaging of the knee.
  3. Recognize important MR imaging features of rotator cuff tears, glenoid labral injuries and their clinical implications.
  4. Detect common abnormalities of frequently injured tendons, ligaments and osteochondral structures on MR imaging of the ankle/foot.
  5. Recognize important imaging features of avascular necrois, labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement syndrome and traumatic injuries of MR of the hip
