Dear Colleagues

Standing at the end of Gdansk’s long wooden pier, I realize that
I can see two of the most important sites in 20th-century history:
the spit of land where World War II began, and the shipyard
where the Cold War started its long and gradual final act.

Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

With great pleasure I would like to invite you to attend the 5th International Sports & Arthritis MSK Conference which will be held on 16–17 November 2018 in Gdańsk, a Polish city on the Baltic coast.

The conference is organized by the Department of Radiology, National Institute of Geriatrics, Rheumatology and Rehabilitation in Warsaw, Sports Section of the Polish Radiological Society. It is endorsed by the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology. 

The Conference program consists of several talks on various musculoskeletal topics, with a focus on imaging of the lower limb and arthritis.

The basic concepts of these fields will be discussed, as well as more recent developments.
For these reasons the Conference will be a great opportunity both to beginners and experienced radiologists, orthopedic surgeons and all other medical specialists, with an interest in MSK performance, to attend educational lectures focused on MSK X-ray, US, MRI and CT anatomy and pathology and to participate live US demonstrations.
