Me and stephanie had a great time in
Thank you for all the pearls we picked-up. Me and stephane were saying that even after fellowship training (stephanie at San Diego, under Dr. Resnick and me at National University Hospital in Singapore, under Prof Wang and others) and 3-4 years of reading MSK MRI and musculoskeletal imaging in general, some things that we did not understand just fell into place and we finally understood them due to the method of teaching applied at this course !! This is especially true with ultrasound. The correlation with anatomy and the technique of doing MSK ultrasound suddenly became understandable and doable. I finally was also able to appreciate the value of ultrasound in superficial tendons and liagments versus MRI as repeatedly emphasized by Prof. Jon George.
Prof Dr John George taught things in a way that things were understood and retained. I should also say the same for Dr. Paulos. He also contributed a lot of pearls in MSK MRI and ultrasound.
I think the strengths of the course are the following:
1) excellent and qualified instructors.
2) real MRI and ultrasound cases with interactive discussion with the delegates.
3) hands on ultrasound training
4 the use of individual laptops facilitating better appreciation of the digital images.
5) small group facilitating a more personalized approach
We advise that for the course cater to teach more MSK MRI anatomy(*please note below) so that the pathology will be easier to understand for general radiologists with little background in seeing anatomy .
Dear Dr. Makes and Dr. John George,
Dr Melodia Geslani
( *Note from Prof George - we have taken the advice and if you have little MRI anatomy experience we will teach you solid MRI anatomy through pre conference and during conference materials. ) . You can see that the Indonesians with little or no experience in MSK MRI anatomy have very high praise for our teaching of MRI anatomy so dont be afraid , come and learn even if your MRI anatomy is not very good at the moment.
Read this link above and you will understand why you should not be left behind by not knowing how to do Musculoskeletal Ultrasound ? At the same time learn to report Musculoskeletal MRI instead of being afraid everytime you see a joint MRI and wish someone else would report it. The study found that 45.4% of primary diagnoses and 30.6% of primary and secondary diagnoses could have been made by ultrasound without the use of MRI . And ultrasound is found everywhere compared to MRI .
We are not shy to say we run the best "small group" personalised course in Asia and the comments of our participants testify to this? 15-20 participants per course only . 5 participants per machine and very experienced tutors during hundreds of cases per year THEMSELVES not their sonographers.
