|Presentation, Multimedia||8236||1||August 5, 2010|
This is an interactive PowerPoint presentation intended for Radiology, Orthopedic Surgery, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residents to learn imaging of the shoulder with emphasis on MRI. At various points in the presentation the reader is directed to available online resources using hyperlinks which will aid in self-learning. The common patterns of shoulder abnormalities with emphasis on MR imaging have been illustrated using a case-based approach.

Effectiveness and Significance
This PowerPoint based resource can be used as a starting point before embarking on more complex imaging of the shoulder to understand the basic concepts in a simplistic fashion. We have used these slides extensively to get the second year radiology residents in their initial rotation to get them initiated to MR imaging of the shoulder. Radiologists with more experience have benefitted from this tool by using it for a quick reference and review.
Special Implementation Guidelines or Requirements
No special implementation is necessary. As this is a PowerPoint presentation, it can be run from any computer with Microsoft Office PowerPoint.
It is well known that residents learn better using a case-based approach. We suggest that this resource be onto the desktops in the MRI reading rooms to maximize its accessibility.
