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
