    MRI Mastery Series: Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) 2020

    Degenerative joint disease in the spine lies at the crossroads of musculoskeletal and neuroimaging.

    In this series, Dr. Dave Yousem provides his perspective on degenerative joint disease (DJD) as a practicing neuroradiologist. He reviews the current nomenclature for disc pathology, some of the common locations for disc herniation and the surgical implications/outcomes of the varying degrees of disc injury. The Degenerative Joint Disease Mastery series provides more than a dozen case reviews of the diagnoses surrounding DJD.

    Some the cases/topics include:

    • Sequestrated discs
    • Herniated discs
    • Disc protrusions
    • Annular fissures
    • And more…

    After completing this course, you will be better able to:

    •       Apply appropriate search patterns to ensure high quality case assessment
    •       Identify key anatomical landmarks, variations, and abnormalities on imaging
    •       Accurately interpret advanced imaging cases
    •       Formulate definitive diagnoses and limited differentials
