From January 17th to 18th Kay G. Hermann and Denis Poddubnyy headed to Houston, Texas, USA. At the annual meeting of the ASAS (Assessment of SpondyloArthritis – International Society) everything revolved around early diagnosis of and improved treatment strategies for axial Spondyloarthritis (axSpA), because grievous disease progressions with stiffenings and deformities are less common if diagnosed early. But what approaches do exist for sensitizing doctors in the area of diagnosing spondyloarthritis?
Our iPads are polished, branded and waiting to be shipped to our next workshop, which will take place in Oberwiesenthal, Germany, with the support of Bayer Pharmaceuticals. 32 radiologists will receive hands-on training in the imaging of rheumatic diseases of the peripheral joints. A further 15 workshops are planned for this year! Stickers created by the best designer @nikolay.tonkoff.
Impressions of the workshop “Modern Imaging of Rheumatic Diseases” as part of the symposium “New Horizons in Radiology”. This year’s topic was peripheral joint diseases. In addition to short lectures, ample time was allocated for working with cases presented on iPads. Tutors from Rheumaimaging.de were available to help the participants solve the cases.
