Musculoskeletal Imaging of the Thoracolumbar Spine
Dr. Lance Mabry leads healthcare professionals in the diagnostic imaging of the thoracolumbar spine. 2-hr CEU/CME.
Time & Location
May 04, 2022, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Live on Zoom
Course Description: This is a live, 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 for individuals with thoracolumbar pain/pathology. Prior to this course, we recommend (although it is not mandatory) that participants take the Intro to MSK Imaging course, available on-demand here. This course will equip each student with the knowledge required to know when a patient with thoracolumbar pain may be in need of imaging, what images to order, and how to perform appropriate clinical correlation of results.
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:
Identify common static musculoskeletal imaging modalities utilized in the thoracolumbar spine.
Understand common radiographic views within the thoracolumbar spine.
Identify when stress view radiography is necessary within the lumbar spine.
Identify normal thoracolumbar anatomy on radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging
Identify the most common imaging planes for thoracolumbar magnetic resonance imaging
Identify physical examination tests to assist in screening for thoracolumbar compression fracture
Determine imaging necessity for clinical concern for thoracolumbar compression fracture based on a clinical prediction guideline
Determine a practice management strategy for patients with radiographically identified thoracolumbar compression fracture
Identify common thoracolumbar pathologies with their proper radiologic terminology
Determine imaging necessity for thoracolumbar conditions based on the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria
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.
