Topic: Radiology 214: Crystal Deposition Diseases

Credit Hours: 2

Course Description: This course will cover Clinical and radiographic features of gout, calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal depositions disease (CPPD) and hydroxyapatite deposition disease (HADD).

Course outline:

  • What is crystal deposition disease?
  • Clinical and radiographic features of gout
  • Clinical and radiographic features of calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal depositions disease (CPPD)
