Meeting Review


Peer-reviewed abstracts presented at the 2008 Society of Skeletal Radiology (SSR) Annual Meeting were reviewed again following oral presentation. Topics representing new concepts, new or novel imaging techniques and instructive case series involving the musculoskeletal system, felt to be of potential interest to investigators and practicing clinicians, have been highlighted in this compilation and analysis.
