With a high rate of incidence and broad range of causes, back pain presents clinicians with many treatment paths. Imaging of spine plays an important role in the management of patients, ensuring that appropriate treatment plans are set in place. Approximately 50 physiotherapists attended the latest educational event organised by Universal Medical Imaging to review common pathology associated with back pain, and to consider treatment options.

As MRI is widely accepted as the gold standard in diagnosing spinal disorders, Dr Tarun Jain conducted a thorough review of MRI image interpretation.

This was followed by a discussion on imaging guided injections for pain relief by A/Prof Rajeev Jyoti.

Dr Charles Howse made a special appearance to discuss clinical examination of patient with spinal symptoms.

UMI thanks the speakers and attendees for the opportunity to discuss this important topic in an open forum.
