ObjectivesUpon completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • 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.

Stoller Mini-Fellowship Workshop

Wynn Las Vegas
October 13, 2021


David W. Stoller, MD, FACR
National Director, 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 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 taking place Thursday and Friday, 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.
