MRI of the spine and other relevant imaging for the chiropractor
Instructor:Dre. Sarah Dion
This seminar covers common imaging findings, soft tissue injury, bone and soft tissue cancer; sports injury; musculoskeletal infection; degenerative musculoskeletal disease; inflammatory conditions, rheumatological disease. Delegates will be taken through the latest evidence – based interpretation as well as the literature that helps clinicians to interpret them correctly. The aim is that clinicians can then make their own assessment of the relationship of scan findings to symptoms/ pathology, rather than relying just on the interpretation of the radiologist. The seminar is at times case based and practical.
