ESSR Webinars

Enjoy a premium educational experience, free for ESSR members, that fits into your busy schedule.

The ESSR live webinars are designed for radiologists and residents in radiology with an interest in musculoskeletal imaging. Other healthcare professionals are also welcomed.
Beside selected open access videos, past webinars can be viewed at the members’ area of the ESSR homepage.

The aim is to promote the society’s mission in education and research of the imaging of musculoskeletal diseases with a focus on the European tradition of problem solving in this field. New knowledge should be brought from science into clinical practice.

The webinars contain interactive lectures given by opinion leaders in their field, clinical case vignettes, live discussions, and practice tips. Presentations are optimized for micro e-learning, i. e. for the comfortable use with mobile devices. The learning objectives are oriented on the requirements of the ESSR Diploma and the musculoskeletal part of the ESR board examination.

Webinar places are limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is recommended. Each webinar will last approximately 60 minutes and consists of a mixture of case presentations, a formal lecture and multiple choice questions with an opportunity for discussion at the end.
The webinar will be available offline one week after the online presentation.

Since new treatment options are available in rheumatology, the “face” of Rheumatoid Arthritis and related diseases has changed dramatically. The classic appearance, as described in textbooks, with erosions, joint space narrowing and mutilation is observed with decreasing frequency. On the other hand, a discussion has been raised about preventive treatment in the very early stages of arthritis to gain the optimum in protecting the joints from destruction. These tremendous changes and their influence on imaging can be summarized in some simple rules for the investigation techniques and for structured reporting.
