Canon Online MSK Days | Multimodality Live Webinars

MSK-Days Medical Imaging for MSK-related disorders is commonplace and there would be very few people on the planet who haven’t had a CT, MRI, Ultrasound or plain X-ray for their movement-related malady. The Canon Online MSK Days consist of daily interactive webinars, led by world-renowned experts. The days will provide an online platform for healthcare professionals interested in MSK and sports medicine to connect and learn as we explore innovative imaging and clinical management insights during a series of interactive lectures, practical teaching sessions and real-life clinical case discussions.

The problem Approximately 1.71 billion people have some musculoskeletal condition, and they are the leading contributor to disability worldwide by limiting mobility, dexterity and participation in work and play (1}. While all age groups are affected to some degree by MSK conditions, because globally the average age of the population is rising, the effects and costs of MSK-based aliments are also rapidly increasing.

Voice of MSK Understanding and treating MSK and sports medicine-based conditions require us to work together. To improve the well-being of patients and to avoid healthcare costs blowout, we need to collaborate, not only in the innovation and development of new technologies but also in their implementation and best practices. Canon Medical understands the importance of education and strives to be the ‘’Voice of MSK and Sports Medicine’’ by bringing together subject-matter experts from all over the world to share discoveries, insights and case studies from research and clinical practice.

This webinar series occurs now in the past. The recordings of each day are now available. Please visit each page to watch the webinars again.

Sports Medicine - Joints, Tendons, Ligaments

Where Art Meets with Science – Imaging Peak Performance

Sports medicine involves the medical supervision of athletes in training and in competition. The goal is to prevent injuries, and to treat them when they do occur in what is known as return to play (RTP) recommendations. During this webinar, experts will discuss the application of imaging technologies in the athlete for common injuries of joints, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage with a view to better managing the physically active patient.

Sports Medicine - Muscles

Where Science Meets Art – Imaging the Sporting All-rounder

Our second sports webinar is centred around MSK imaging and the athlete, with a deeper look at the imaging aspects of return to play (RTP) recommendations. Join our experts as they focus on muscle-based injuries of the athlete and active individuals including assessments of critical sports injuries.

+ Day 2 | Sports Medicine


Deciphering the Signs – Problem-Solving Pain Using Imaging

MSK related pain starts with injuries or diseases, but it’s often part of the process of getting older. Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons adults seek medical advice (2). Contemporary high-resolution medical imaging including functional scanning has bought new perspectives to evaluating nerve and muscle diseases. Join our experts as we explore how state-of-the-art imaging is transforming our understanding of the physical causes of MSK related pain as well as guiding treatment.

+ Day 3 | Pain


The Right Test at the Right Time – Maximising Imaging Outcome

Primary cancer of the bone represents less than 1% of all cancers, while metastatic spread to the bone and adjacent soft tissues is considerably more common (3). In either case all imaging modalities, ionising and non-ionising have a role to play in diagnosis, staging, treatment, and follow-up. During this webinar, experts will guide you through the application of these imaging technologies to maximize their utility to better assist in the diagnosis and treatment of these complex disease states.

+ Day 4 | Oncology

Arthritis, Osteoporosis and Sarcopenia

I Move Therefore I Age – Imaging for Locomotion and Ageing

Approximately 1.71 billion people have some sort of musculoskeletal (MSK) condition, and they are the leading contributor to disability worldwide by limiting mobility, dexterity and participation in work and play (4). During this webinar we will explore the roles of imaging in some of the most common MSK-based conditions, arthritis, osteoporosis, and sarcopenia to better manage their application for these conditions that become more common the older we get.

+ Day 5 | Arthritis, Osteoporosis and Sarcopenia
