Emergency Radiology Micro-Course — MSK (Upper Extremity Focusing on Shoulder Trauma) Case Review


Join us for the upcoming virtual Emergency Radiology — MSK Micro-Course. In this micro-course led by Manickam Kumaravel, MD, you’ll have the opportunity to study and interpret upper extremity trauma in an ER setting and develop a high level of expertise and confidence in emergent upper extremity trauma imaging.

Throughout the course, you will:

  • Review common and uncommon fractures of the upper extremities with emphasis on the “easily missed” fracture.
  • Recognize common and significant injuries in trauma and their clinal significance.
  • Earn up to 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 4.0 SAM credits.


NOTE: Micro-courses are NOT compatible with tablets (specifically iPads).


The American College of Radiology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American College of Radiology designates this enduring material activity for a maximum of 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This activity meets the ABR’s criteria for a self-assessment activity in the ABR’s Maintenance of Certification program. Participation in this activity and successful completion of the corresponding evaluation component enables participants to earn up to a maximum of 4.0 SAM credits.

Through an agreement between the American College of Radiology and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, MOC Program Participants may record self-assessment programs or simulation activities developed and accredited by the American College of Radiology in Section 3 of the Royal College’s MOC Program.
