Our 3-day CME course will cover, in tandem, topics in musculoskeletal medicine including trauma, joint replacement, spine, tumors, and different joints from the radiologist and orthopaedist point of view. Each clinical talk delivered by an orthopaedist and radiologist will include, "What does the Radiologist need to know?" and "What do I need to know from the Radiologist?" Each session will include a multidisciplinary panel composed of internationally renowned radiologists and orthopaedic surgeons who will debate on "How I do it."
