✧✧ ESSR 2015 - "Shoulder" ✧✧
June 18-20, York/UK

The Annual Congress of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology - ESSR will be held in York, from June 18-20, 2015. Refresher Courses, scientific sessions, parallel special focus sessions, keynote lectures, lunch time symposia sponsored by industrial partners, the technical exhibition and the poster exhibition take place near York Old Town.

Course Description
The 2015 ESSR Annual Meeting and refresher course will take the shoulder joint as its theme. The refresher course will be delivered by an international faculty of acknowledged experts comprising members of the society and invited guest speakers. Alongside the refresher course there will also be scientific sessions for selected proffered papers.
The instructional lectures will run concurrently as two parallel sessions. One will be dedicated to shoulder imaging and will include discussion of all normal anatomy and pathological conditions affecting the shoulder. There will also be a session on image guided interventional procedures in the shoulder. Along with lectures by radiologists, specialist shoulder surgeons will provide a clinical perspective. The second stream will cover a wide range of more general themes in MSK radiology including tumours, arthritis, trauma, metabolic conditions and sports imaging. Delegates will be able to move freely between the two streams to tailor the course to their individual needs and learning requirements.
In addition, the program will feature an expert panel film interpretation session, presented as a quiz to delegates and allowing them to test their knowledge against as selection of faculty members. A dedicated one-day Musculoskeletal Shoulder Ultrasound Course will also be offered, requiring separate registration, with lectures, live demonstrations, and small group hands-on tutorial workshops taught by internationally-recognized experts in the field from the ESSR ultrasound subcommittee.

Target Audience
