Radiology Conference South Africa Johannesburg Ankle/ Foot, Hip and Elbow MSK MRI Mini Fellowship and Workstation Workshop 30th November- 01st December 2019
This workshop will concentrate entirely on Ankle, Foot, Hip and Elbow MRI with a full day spent on Ankle and Foot which are increasingly common areas requested in MSK imaging with Hip and Elbow done on the second day. The anatomy of the Ankle and Elbow in particular can be quite complex and we simplify this by taking a structured approach to assessing the various structures and we will cover the abnormalities that we commonly see in cases that come up for reporting. The miini fellowship is aimed at enabling you to learn, practice and retain knowledge and to go back to work reporting the MRI scans on your list more confidently and accurately.
Mini Fellowship and Workshop: What is it?
We will be running the teaching as a Mini Fellowship with a structured 30 Day Pre Workshop Learning with Dicoms, How to Videos and Posts to get you the basic information before the workshop, then a 2 Day Workstation Workshop to build on the pre workshop course by learning to assess 100's of dicoms followed by a 30 Day Post Workshop review Programme to refresh and help retain what you have learnt. The fellowship is aimed at enabling you to learn, practice and retain knowledge and to go back to work reporting the MRI scans on your list more confidently and accurately. Our workshops have been popular as they provide a hands on learning where you see 100's of dicoms on individual workstations. You will see and diagnose more pathology in a weekend than most people will see in years.
Why are we having workstation based workshops and not endless days of lectures?
When we report at work, we dont have someone showing us just selected relevant images to make a diagnosis, we have a full dicom study to evaluate and report. We need to be able to evaluate all the information to make the diagnosis and very importantly exclude irrelevant information. Our workshops are based on learning by guided viewing and evaluating 100's of dicom scans on individual workstations, just like you do at work. We feel that this is the only way to learn.

CPD POINTS 35.3 points allocated by RANZCR.
WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR? We have Radiologists, Rheumatologists and Sports Medicine Physicians attending but the workshop will be suitable for any Medical Doctor who has an interest in or deals with MSK injuries. The level of the workshop is for Doctors with limited to intermediate experience in MSK MRI who wish to improve their reporting of MSK cases. The workshop would not be suitable for you if you have significant experience in reporting MSK MRI or have done a MSK Fellowship.
TRAINEES: We do a lot of trainee teaching but we have found that these workshops are better suited to consultants. For the moment we have ceased trainee registration and are in the process of developing a separate course better suited for trainees.
