Please email Prof Dr John George at msk.rad@gmail.com for the official flyer , registration form and programme for the Penang MSK MRI and Ultrasound course March 24th -27th 2009 where there are few places left for overseas participants ONLY.   
 
Come and enjoy the PEARL of the ORIENT - Penang Island - and at the same time you will learn to become an expert at MSK MRI interpretation and be able to perform Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
 
Your hotel is a beachfront hotel and you will be enjoying your lunches with a refreshing view of the tropical beach .  Evenings ,  you can swim in the 25metre pool.
 
 
Best regards
Prof Dr John George
