EULAR Online Course on Imaging in RMDs

This EULAR online course on imaging covers 12 modules, followed by an examination in October each year. The content is based on the EULAR guidelines for the use of imaging (conventional radiographs (CR), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)) in chronic inflammatory rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). The learner level is aimed primarily at Section Residents and Fellows in Training as well as Rheumatologists. It aims to educate rheumatologists and future rheumatologists on how to interpret imaging examinations in chronic inflammatory RMDs and use the imaging results to guide their daily treatment.

The course consists of 3 main topics (based on the three modalities CR, CT, and MRI),  related to different main conditions (RA, PsA, axSpA, and OA). Each of the modules has a review/main text, including images and other interactive features, as well as learning objectives, a summary, and key references.

In addition, the leaners will find in-depth discussions about differences and similarities of the diagnoses, based on imaging examples, typical clinical cases (including self-assessment), dealing with the role of imaging in diagnosis and treatment of each condition. At the end of each module, there is a self-assessment examination.

The learner can take this online examination after finishing all modules once a year (a second year is automatically added free of charge if the exam is not passed or not all modules are completed within the first year). Passing the online examination results in a EULAR certificate of completion for the EULAR online course on imaging in RMDs.

The online course was developed with a substantial grant from EULAR and is continuously highly subsidised by EULAR, so that the entire course can be offered at the lowest price possible. Prices: regular learner - 150EUR, EULAR School of Rheumatology member - 125 EUR. Low and middle income countries below 10'000 US$: regular learner - 125 EUR, EULAR School of Rheumatology member - 100 EUR. List LMI countries.
