Meeting Highlights


The Society of Skeletal Radiology (SSR) held its 2018 annual meeting at the JW Marriott Austin in Austin, TX, from March 25–28, 2018. The meeting was attended by 334 society members and 56 members in training.

Scientific program

A total of 118 abstracts were submitted by SSR members for consideration, reflecting their active clinical research. From these submissions, the program committee selected 57 abstracts for oral presentation and inclusion in the scientific program. Abstracts were presented by major topic, including Emerging Technologies, Upper Extremity, Intervention/Post-Operative, Hip/Pelvis, Trauma/Miscellaneous, Tumor, and Lower Extremity. In total, over 30 h of AMA category 1 continuing medical education (CME) credits were offered with the scientific program available at In addition, 51 electronic scientific and educational posters...
