24th AMSIG ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING

2-3 MAY 2020

On behalf of the Australasian Musculoskeletal Imaging Group (AMSIG) executive, we would like to invite you to join us at the 24th Annual Scientific Meeting to be held at the SMC Conference and Function Centre, in central Sydney, Australia on May 2/3 2020.

Our meeting is the principal event for musculoskeletal radiologists in the Oceania region. The coming year’s presentations will largely be on the topics of rheumatological imaging and tumour imaging. The focus on the meeting will be to try to address some of the problem cases which are experienced even in general radiology reporting on a variety of joint and tumour problems. We have invited experts in imaging, orthopaedic surgery, and rheumatology to encourage collaboration between specialties and ensure relevant contemporary radiology practice.
