Spine Imaging in Montreal

Course Overview

The Spine Imaging Course would be a 1-day course that aims to provide a systematic approach to the diagnosis and management of spine diseases, using a case-based approach. This way of delivering content has proven to be highly effective and it is very well received by meeting participants. Of note, the course would have both musculoskeletal and neuroradiology experts delivering high-quality subspecialty content, with emphasis in pearls and take-home messages that the attendees can put into practice as soon as they return to their practices. Community respirologists and radiologists will be offered a unique opportunity to interact with the speakers and participate in a comprehensive discussion of current guidelines for diagnosis and management of spine disorders. The course will be held on a Saturday, in the fall, at a downtown Montreal location.
