Advanced MRI Case-Based Mini-Fellowship where Dr. Stoller will review select images and entire DICOM Shoulder MRI cases on Wednesday before the regular didactic checklist course. These cases will be projected on to a large screen from Dr. Stoller’s workstation. With limited registration to 65 attendees, 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 Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, especially for those who have an interest in immersing themselves in MSK subspecialization.
Dr. Stoller will provide advanced 1.5 and 3T updates and specifically demonstrate his hints and secrets for identifying SLAP tears with high sensitivity and specificity, specific rotator cuff tear patterns using actual cases and examples of high attachment anterior band and glenohumeral joint capsular variations. New concept of the rotator cable and over-tensioning the cuff in repair, which is not yet covered in the literature will be discussed.
8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 credits
