6th Musculoskeletal MRI meeting 2019: MRI of elbow and other forgotten joints

Saturday, May 25th 2019 - Università della Svizzera Italiana, Auditorium


Dear Colleagues,
MRI of elbow, temporomandibular joint, sternoclavicular joint and metacarpophalangeal joint are relatively rare exams in the clinical practice and as such they can raise some concern in reporting. Therefore, we decided to collect theses joints in one day and invite a very high panel of speakers with a special expertise in the field that will give us a detailed overview of the topic from the clinical and the imaging point of view.
We hope to welcome you in Lugano to enjoy not only the meeting but our beautiful city as well.
