1) Identify clinically significant abnormalities on MR Imaging examinations of the musculoskeletal system. 2) Learn how to optimize the image quality of MR Imaging examinations, and to recognize and reduce technical artifacts using a case-based approach. 3) Understand the value of MR Imaging in the assessment of musculoskeletal pathology, and internal derangement of joints. 4) Develop an approach to the MR Imaging assessment of the postoperative joint.


Diagnosis of traumatic and nontraumatic conditions in the upper extremity requires an understanding of the normal anatomy, common pathology, and imaging pitfalls. Common bone and soft tissue lesions will be shown together with other related conditions that occur as part of the differential diagnosis or as imaging mimics. Characteristic findings on MRI will be correlated with the pathophysiology and other imaging modalities.
