There are just 7 places left for the 8th MSK MRI & Ultrasound conference and workshop for Radiologists which will be held this March 15th to 18th 2017 in the beautiful island of Penang, Malaysia. Places are open to all, even those who have not pre-registered, as the first deadline for pre-registration payments are over.
Please apply soon with payment if you would like to secure one of the remaining places at the Penang Course and better still come in a group with your colleagues and have a great time in this resort island in a hotel by the famous Batu Feringghi beach.
Why the Penang Musculoskeletal MRI and Ultrasound Course?
In today’s practice, we use MSK MRI and MSK Ultrasound equally to detect joint pathology and this course is unique in combining both these modalities. For instance, it is very difficult to visualise the CFL of the ankle in MRI but it can be seen very well and function tested on MSK ultrasound. Orthopaedic surgeons value accuracy in reporting and you will be able to detect and report with 95% accuracy joint pathology using one or both of the above techniques. We teach you all the pearls, tricks and tips from years of combined experience of our faculty.
The Kuala Lumpur Advanced course is now confirmed for 2017 from August 17th to 19th and is only for those who have attended a Basic MSK Ultrasound course and are practising MSK Ultrasound weekly. The detailed teaching as in the Penang Course for a solid base is not taught in the KL course which is more to fill in gaps in your knowledge by asking the tutors specific needs. If you are unsure, please attend the Penang course first.
Don’t forget to read the testimonials of those who have attended the previous Penang courses and the course evaluations. This course is worth attending as a career investment for yourself and to train you to become a sought-after radiologist amongst the Orthopaedic surgeons and other physicians in your city. You will earn far more that what you have invested in this course from the increased referrals due to increased accuracy of reporting and ability to do MSK ultrasound.
What will you learn?
Our Penang courses are unique because we have dedicated sessions covering the various joints. For each joint, the course begins by lectures that go in detail over the normal gross and radiological anatomy. Lectures are detailed to ensure that all the basics are covered, making the course ideal for radiologists who are not confident in reporting Musculoskeletal MRI. Then, basic to intermediate pathology is covered using actual patient MRI and Ultrasound video cases using the pearls and principles learnt from the lectures which will enable you to report accurately most of the cases that you face from day to day reporting.
Through various cases, we are able to demonstrate the common roadblocks faced by radiologists and physicians and provide methods to solve them. The research done in my institution has been targeted to the Asian population, making this course extremely unique and popular among Asians, but Europeans and Australians also attest the practical usefulness of the pearls and tips shared.
We also limit the practical sessions to have 1 faculty to 6 participants to give more personalized attention to individual participants. Furthermore, 3 additional tables with models are present so that delegates can practice the newly learned skills to see if they can perform the examination independently or call on the faculty for further help.
Please fill up the online registration form if you are interested to attend. You will be informed when you need to pay to secure the seat if you have not paid already. Refunds are allowed provided notice is given at least 2 months in advance.
This course is very highly rated as it is a very practical course and the teaching is done in a manner that is easily understood as those teaching are very skilled to get the message across. It is unique as it covers both MSK MRI and USS to get the most accurate diagnosis to solve the patients’ current problem and not just give a report of abnormalities noted.
