Screening: Shoulder Imaging

The ability to appropriately refer for, and interpret the results of diagnostic imaging investigations is critical in primary health care.

Calcific tendinopathy is a cell-mediated process that may be self-limiting, or may require specific intervention.

4 hours

Rotator Cuff: Diagnosis of Subacromial Pain

The ability to first differentiate the subacromial region as the source of pain is the first step in the diagnostic process for symptomatic subacromial pathology.

3 hours

Rotator Cuff: Massive/Inoperable Rotator Cuff Tears
