The course covers the vast majority of musculoskeletal diseases including trauma, neoplasm, infection, arthritis and internal derangement, metabolic, systemic and congenital abnormalities.

Extensive pdfs produced directly from the Powerpoint files will be provided. A systematic “pattern approach” to differential diagnosis will also be emphasized. Learn more about ACR AIRP categorical courses.
