Introduction to Musculoskeletal Imaging
Dr. Lance Mabry leads healthcare professionals in the basic science and utilization of musculoskeletal diagnostic imaging. 2-hr CEU/CME.
Time & Location
May 12, 2021, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Live on Zoom
Course Description: This is a virtual 2-hour course designed for primary care providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and physical therapists) to enhance their foundational knowledge in diagnostic imaging modalities. This course will be the foundation for additional region-specific courses (i.e. Musculoskeletal Imaging of the Knee) and will focus on a range of modalities including radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography. This live course will allow the student to interact with the instructor and the other students. The course will convey the inherent statistical properties of each modality and how that impacts interpretations and clinical management. The course will instruct on radiologic verbiage to maximize the students’ ability to garner information from an interpretation and for inter-professional communication with radiologists. Students will also be taught a communication strategy with radiologists to improve the interpretation, improve the clinical correlation, and ultimately improve the management of the patient.
CEU/CME Hours: 2
Board Certified Orthopaedic Specialist
Fellow of the American Academy of Manual Physical Therapists
Course Objectives: At the conclusion of the course, participants will demonstrate competency in the following objectives:
a. Understand the inherent statistical properties of various diagnostic imaging modalities.
b. Understand the risks, benefits, and limitations of various imaging modalities.
c. Understand how to orient yourself to directionality (superior/lateral/right/left/etc) in various imaging modalities.
d. Understand how to interpret/use proper radiologic verbiage when discussing various imaging modalities
e. Identify structures by their radiodensity (air, fat, water/soft tissue, bone, metal) in radiographs or computed tomography scans.
f. Apply search strategies for various imaging modalities.
g. Select the appropriate window when searching for bony pathology utilizing computed tomography.
h. Understand the properties of various magnetic resonance imaging weights and how that facilities optimal view of anatomy, soft tissue pathology, and bony pathology.
i. Understand what urgency is required when ordering radiologic tests for varying conditions.
j. Utilize a mnemonic to convey a clinical vignette to the radiologist when ordering radiologic test.
7 – 7:45 PM: Introduction and Radiography
7:45 - 8:15 PM: Computed Tomography
8:15 – 8:45 PM: Magnetic Resonance Imaging
8:45 – 9:00 PM: Referral for Imaging
Competency Demonstration: In order to receive continuing education credit, each participant must achieve 70% in a 10-question quiz provided via Flexiquiz after the course. If the student fails to achieve 70 points throughout the course, they will be asked to complete additional assignments until remediation is achieved. Once the student achieves this score and completes the course evaluation, they will be e-mailed an official course certificate.
The course is acceptable for most Category A (live course/clinic) continuing education credits for healthcare and fitness professionals. Check with your respective credentialing agency or state board to ensure the objectives of the course match your specific requirement. RHE assumes no liability or responsibily for courses that are not approved by your credentialing institution or state board.
