Upcoming Sessions

Imaging and Pain

Tuesday 21 August 18:30 to Tuesday 21 August 21:00
Prince Alfred College

Imaging and Pain

This session will focus on 3 Clinical Cases where a patient presenting has a complex pain presentation and multiple findings on imagining. The three regions include: lower back pain, knee pain and forefoot pain.

Each case will review the relevant MSK radiological findings presented, additional normative data to the key findings of the report, followed by discussion on the key ways / wording in these findings to the patient to best de-threaten what has been diagnosed.

The session will also discuss how do we know which is the main factor causing pain or is it something we are not seeing on imaging (i.e. the mechanical movement / load on the tissue).

 Time:   6:30pm    Networking and light refreshments and finger food 
    7:00pm - 9:00pm    Speakers + Panel Discussion
