The committees areas of activity encompass all imaging modalities relevant to musculoskeletal diseases, and it works in collaboration with existing Standing Committees (especially the Education Standing Committee).

The aims of the committee are to promote:

  • Education in both the understanding and application of imaging modalities.
  • Research in imaging modalities to inform their clinical utility and their use in clinical and therapeutic trials.
  • Improved patient care through the appropriate use of imaging modalities.

The committee is composed by delegates coming from member countries of EULAR, a representative of EUMEUNET and several co-opted members with particular interest in imaging both for research and education purposes.
