This chapter reviews the fundamental elements in interpreting imaging examinations of the neuromuscular system: normal anatomy, imaging techniques, and pathologic conditions. Knowledge of anatomy and of the capabilities of the various techniques is a prerequisite for correctly interpreting the pathologic changes displayed. Imaging examinations also have an impact on patient care by providing meaningful information about the location, extent, severity, and activity of muscular disorders. Further, the muscular abnormalities detected on imaging examinations—some specific and some nonspecific—can be used to plan treatment, predict prognosis, guide invasive procedures, and assess therapeutic response. The candidate will learn the mechanics of putting together an electronic poster presentation in lecture type format. This will be an official peer-reviewed publication. The publication will be a favorable addition to the candidate's CV. The candidate will be the first author, and I am the second author. A candidate is not limited to completing one project. He/she can do as many as they like! (There are always topics to teach about) The candidate, myself, King's College Hospital Department of Radiology and King's College all benefit from this publication.
