Osseous, articular, and soft tissue structures may become involved in many infectious disorders. Bacteria, mycobacteria, spirochetes, fungi, viruses, rickettsiae, protozoa, and worms are all capable of affecting the musculoskeletal system. In many instances, imaging features, though typical of an infection, do not allow the diagnosis of a specific causative agent; in some cases, the distribution and morphology of the lesions are sufficiently characteristic to suggest a single infectious process. In all cases, the imaging studies must be interpreted in conjunction with the clinical and pathologic manifestations.
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.
