David W. Stoller, MD, FACR
National Director of Orthopaedic and Musculoskeletal Imaging, RadNet
Clinical Professor of Radiology, UCSF
Affiliate Member, American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons
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 Saturday 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 Sunday and Monday, especially for those who have an interest in immersing themselves in MSK sub-specialization.
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.
