Meeting Highlights


The 45th Annual Meeting of the International Skeletal Society (ISS) was held in Berlin, Germany, from September 23 to September 28, 2018. The meeting consisted of a 3-day closed meeting for ISS members and a 4-day refresher course, which included a 1-day dedicated musculoskeletal ultrasound course. This article will review the highlights of the Scientific Sessions, which are part of the closed meeting.

Scientific program

This year, 109 scientific abstract submissions were received, of which 20 were selected for a 10-min oral presentation in the Special Scientific Session. The winners of the best scientific paper of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR), the Asian Musculoskeletal Society (AMS), and the Society of Skeletal Radiology (SSR) also presented their winning papers during the Special Scientific Session. For the Scientific Breakout Session, ten abstracts were selected for a 6-min oral presentation. The abstracts for the Special Scientific Session...
