Stoller Mini-Fellowship Workshop

Melbourne, Australia,  Sofitel Melbourne on Collins

August 10, 2018

Faculty and Director

David W. Stoller, MD, FACR
National Director of Orthopaedic and Musculoskeletal Imaging, RadNet
Fellowship Program Director, RadNet


Add-On by Popular Demand: Intensive Mini-Fellowship Workshop where Dr. Stoller will review entire DICOM MRI cases going through all images and sequences for each study, reviewing shoulder, knee, ankle, hip, wrist and elbow on Friday before the regular didactic checklist course. These cases will be projected on to a large screen, from Dr. Stoller’s workstation. With limited registration, there will be an opportunity for Dr. Stoller to critique individual registrants if they want to improve their skills interpreting a case during the session. Registrants will find this experience complementary to the regular session of Saturday and Sunday, especially for those who have an interest in immersing themselves in MSK subspecialization.

Dr. Stoller will specifically demonstrate his hints and secrets for identifying SLAP tears with high sensitivity and specificity, prospective diagnosis of meniscal tear types using actual cases and examples of anterior band glenohumeral joint variations. New advances in evaluating chondral labral junction injuries of the acetabulum of the hip will be discussed, which is an area of much confusion in the literature.

ObjectivesUpon completion of program, participants should be able to:

  • Employ a shoulder checklist method including interpretation techniques for the rotator cuff and interval, biceps labral complex, inferior glenohumeral ligament complex, and capsular structures including the anterior band.
  • Identify glenoid wear patterns in multidirectional instability, microinstability, anterior and posterior instability.
  • Develop a knee checklist with foolproof ACL diagnosis and techniques for prospective diagnosis of all types of meniscal tears, differentiating circumferential surface from cross sectional tear patterns.
  • Introduce strategies in the evaluation of the cruciate ligaments, posterolateral instability, and articular cartilage.
  • Utilize a femoroacetabular impingement checklist to distinguish between FAI and DDH pathology.
  • Discuss approaches for accurate acetabular-labral tear identification. Introduce orthopedic articular cartilage classification for the acetabular roof.
  • Develop an ankle checklist including articulations, ligaments, tendons and articular cartilage.
  • Describe all types of soft tissue ankle impingement and posterior ligamentous and subtalar joint anatomy.
  • Develop a wrist checklist with emphasis on the intrinsic and extrinsic ligaments and the triangular fibrocartilage.
  • Explain the relevance of perilunate instability, SLAC and triscaphe arthritis.
  • Develop an elbow checklist with the ability to differentiate epicondylitis from instability patterns
