Musculoskeletal interventions – keeping patients moving

As MSK interventions are being performed more often, the interventional community is gaining more and more experience with these procedures while producing data to prove their efficiency and reliability. Thanks to this, today many MSK interventions are performed either with palliative or curative intent aiming to reduce pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life, as well as for local tumour control.

Interventional radiologists predominantly perform MSK interventions in the spine and peripheral skeleton. It is of the utmost importance to provide the interventional radiology community with education and further training on MSK techniques in order to maintain our leadership role in this field and to guarantee the best possible patient care. This is why CIRSE is offering this free four-part webinar series covering a multitude of MSK topics, from degenerative musculoskeletal disease to musculoskeletal interventions for cancer patients, available free of charge via the CIRSE Library.

Learning objectives:

  1. To provide technical details, tips and tricks for a safe and efficacious performance of different MSK techniques
  2. To discuss the advantages and disadvantages of percutaneous over surgical approaches
  3. To provide literature data supporting the application of percutaneous MSK techniques
