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.

You will be shown cases by examiners, and receive advice and guidance on how best to prepare for your examination. For the junior registrar attendees, this will be an exceptional opportunity for you to witness this important process and time permitting, take your place as the mock candidate (subject to availability).
The AMSIG Academy is presented by past and present musculoskeletal examiners, from 1.00pm – 2.30pm on Sunday 3 May at the conclusion of the 24th AMSIG Annual Meeting, at the meeting venue, the SMC Conference and Function Centre, Sydney.
