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 to use the imaging results to guide their daily treatment.
The expected learning time per week is calculated around 2 1/2 hours but very flexible for the learners who can enter the learning system at any time and have available free of charge an extra year if needed.
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.
The learner can take this online final examination, after finishing all modules, once a year (a second year is automatically added free of charge if the exam is not passed or if not all modules are completed within the first year). Passing the online examination results in a EULAR certificate of completion of 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.
Module structure and final exam
Each online module deals with one particular topic and contains:
The final examination will assess a sample of the learning outcomes from the whole course (45 questions) within 45 minutes. The examination is run annually at a given date and time period for which participants are notified well in advance. All learners are free to choose in which year they would like to take the examination keeping in mind that it is a 1 year course with an additional 2nd year added only if required.
Highly recommended: ALL learners of this online course are welcome to register to the EULAR Advanced Hands-On Imaging Workshop, a practical case-based event prior to the EULAR 2019 Congress in Amsterdam. Participants will be able to apply the knowledge gained from the online course to real-life cases collected from daily practice. Registration for this live event will start soon.
