This course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in musculoskeletal imaging. This intense one-day programme is articulated on ultrasound of tendons and muscles, imaging strategies for bone tumors and pediatric musculoskeletal diseases, and differential diagnosis of osteopenia. It is designed to update knowledge and interpretation skills on all causes of osteopenia, but also less frequent diseases (congenital and developmental pediatric diseases; cartilaginous bone tumors, …). Also practical tips for improved ultrasound imaging of sports injuries to muscles and tendons will be provided. There will be a special focus on the impact of the imaging on patient management and on communication to patients and the requesting physicians.

Renowned European lecturers will ensure a high-quality teaching programme, combining lectures and interactive cases.
