The CME activity is a review of clinical applications concerning the diagnosis, treatment and management of the musculoskeletal disorders. Modern imaging strategies, surgical correlation and the need for intra-disciplinary teamwork when deciding the most effective patient management is addressed. Faculty share techniques and tips in image interpretation of musculoskeletal injuries and pathology. Information gained from this activity is geared to improve diagnostic capabilities and expand clinical applications.
