Case-Based Diagnosis Training

Case submission is now CLOSED.
Thank you for your submissions!

ECR 2017 will see the return of last year’s popular sessions for general radiologists and residents at the end of their training looking for a simple update on subjects outside of their usual field.

The Case-Based Diagnosis Training sessions will offer an interactive way to test your knowledge in a range of subspecialty areas, with a special interlude on musculoskeletal manifestations of systemic disease. These sessions promise a highly informative and entertaining experience.

Case-Based Diagnosis Training: MSK manifestations of systemic disease

Musculoskeletal imaging accounts for a large proportion of many radiologists’ daily work. Not all patients with joint pain and swelling, muscle pain, or limited range of motion have an orthopaedic problem, but they may suffer from MSK manifestations of systemic entities.
If these systemic diseases have not yet been diagnosed, our awareness of this possibility may help to recognise the underlying cause and potentially prevent further damage.

We should be especially alert when there is lack of trauma or overuse in a patient with an atypical, but persistent pain pattern presenting with uncharacteristic imaging findings. The list of systemic disorders with possible MSK manifestations is long and includes the well known culprits, such as gout, CPPD, autoimmune disease and diabetes, as well as amyloid, acromegaly, multiple myeloma, and the lesser known like Caplan’s, POEMS and Kawasaki syndrome.

Send us your best images of patients with systemic causes of musculoskeletal pain, so we can discuss the most pathognomonic signs related to anatomy and organs in order to take a glimpse at etiology, pathophysiology and radiological features of all these congenital, endocine, haematological, neoplastic and inflammatory disorders. Together we will look at how we detect these manifestations in our routine work in the fields of neuroradiology, thoracic and abdominal radiology, uroradiology, paediatric radiology as well as cardiac and vessel imaging.

Submit your best images for the MSK manifestations of systemic disease interlude during the Case-Based Diagnosis Training session at ECR 2017. The best submission will receive an award.

In order to standardise submissions, we kindly ask you to use our submission template, fill in the required information and send it per e-mail by December 12, 2016.

Please also send us your name, contact details and field of specialisation.
