Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,
with great pleasure I would like to invite you to attend the 7th International Sports & Arthritis MSK Conference which will be held on 18–20 November 2021 in Gdańsk, a Polish city on the Baltic coast.
The two-days conference will be proceeded by one day MRI workshop, where at the workstations and under the supervision of mentors, we will teach how to interpret MR images of specific pathologies of the hip and pelvis.
The Conference program consists of number of talks on various musculoskeletal topics,
with a focus on imaging of the hip and pelvis, including FAI, inflammations, tumours, fractures, other painful conditions, such as greater trochanter pain syndrome, groin pain, pediatric hip, rheumatic hip, and many others.
The basic concepts of these fields will be discussed, as well as more recent developments. For these reasons the Conference will be a great opportunity both to beginners and experienced radiologists, orthopedic surgeons and all other medical specialists, with an interest in MSK performance, to attend educational lectures focused on MSK radiographs, US, MRI and CT anatomy and pathology and to participate live US demonstrations.
The international faculty thus far includes renowned European ESSR experts and top Polish experts in MSK radiology: P. Diana Afonso (Portugal), Beata Ciszkowska-Łysoń (Poland), Tobias Dietrich (Switzerland), Lennart Jans (Belgium), Milko de Jonge (Netherlands), Ara Kassarjian (Spain), Karolina Kukawska-Sysio (Poland), Jarosław Maczuch (Poland), Patrick Omoumi (Switzerland), Piotr Palczewski (Poland), Grzegorz Pracoń (Poland), Jarosław Skupiński (Poland), Iwona Sudoł-Szopińska (Poland), James Teh (United Kingdom), Janusz Wieczorek (Poland).
The 2020 Conference is co-organised by the radiological societies and sections: Sports Section of the Polish Radiological Society, Sports and Arthritis Subcommittees of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology, Department of Radiology, National Institute of Geriatrics, Rheumatology and Rehabilitation in Warsaw.
Do not miss the chance to meet us in the historical and beautiful Gdańsk – the city of pioneers, such as Peter Krüger, Johannes Hevelius, Joachim Oelhaf, Johann Schmiedt, Matthäus Wolf, Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, Arthur Schopenhauer, Hugo Conventz and the Nobel prize winners, including Adolf Butenandt, Lech Wałęsa and Günter Grass.
