About this Unit
MR Musculoskeletal “MSK” Imaging is a core unit in the course of Advanced Imaging (MRI). The unit provides students with in-depth knowledge of the relevant protocols to create MR sequences for MSK anatomical regions such as the knee, ankle and hip as well as the spine for different clinical examinations. It is expected that students will develop the ability to recognise normal anatomy, identify common pathologies and be able to provide diagnostic solutions and/or develop new MRI algorithms for clinical problems. They will have the ability to either produce, request or recommend the proper sequence and the best method of operating the MRI equipment for the anatomical region in question. The unit is offered to Medical Practitioners “MO”, Medical Radiation Practitioners “MRP” and a large cohort of Allied Health “AH” professionals with a varied pathway for the two weeks clinical component relevant to their discipline. Students will have 2 weeks of clinical training in an MRI clinical site.
