UCSF Neuro and Musculoskeletal Imaging 2022


This online CME course delivers a comprehensive state-of-the-art update on clinically relevant topics in neuroradiology and musculoskeletal imaging, including a discussion of optimized protocols with 1.5T and 3T MR. Faculty review indications commonly seen in general practice, along with updates designed to improve image acquisition and interpretation strategies.

Radiology continuing medical education topics covered in UCSF Neuro and Musculoskeletal Imaging include:

  • Imaging overview of neuroradiological emergencies
  • Head & neck tumor staging
  • Advanced imaging techniques (MR neurography, fMRI, DTI)
  • Major joints
  • Introduction to musculoskeletal ultrasound
  • Bone marrow and tumors
  • And more…

Learning Objectives

After viewing this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Recommend CT/MR protocols for brain, head & neck, spine, nerve and musculoskeletal imaging
  • Recognize specific imaging features of infection, trauma, tumors, and inflammatory disorders in the head & spine, and communicate key findings enabling rapid pathological classification
  • Distinguish between normal anatomy, common anatomic variants and pathological disorders of the major musculoskeletal joints, brain, head & neck and spine as evaluated on MRI
  • Recognize internal derangement and post-operative appearances of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and foot
  • Implement utilization of diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound, ultrasound-guided musculoskeletal procedures and common joint injections; Identify important imaging characteristics of infection, bone and soft-tissue tumors
  • Understand advanced neuroimaging techniques including fMRI, DTI, and MR neurography
  • Develop strategies for evaluating common and uncommon abnormalities in the brain and spine

Intended Audience

This course is targeted toward radiologists and other medical professionals who will benefit from an increased understanding of neuro and musculoskeletal imaging methods, interpretation and diagnosis.
