With the ISS at the helm, this year’s program emphasised the organisation’s mission to encourage the collaboration of professionals dedicated to advancing the diagnosis and therapy of musculoskeletal disorders.

MSK 2023 served as a launchpad for some of the latest advancements in musculoskeletal technologies, and delegates enjoyed access to presentations by many senior industry representatives. These people are the industry’s trailblazers, training the future of radiology and paving the way for ground-breaking developments in orthopaedics, rheumatology, and physiotherapy.

Events such as MSK 2023 allow the exchange of ideas, the creation of professional relationships and strategic partnerships to provide a rich, current view of the state of musculoskeletal therapies. With ISS facilitating this year, this proved even more accurate, and the QEII Centre proved the perfect venue.

Some very interesting discussions over coffee, while Antonio is hard at work.

Our sister company, Adaptix, was also exhibiting, and a broad range of societies attended the meeting.

The enthusiasm for the upcoming commercialisation of our compact MSK extremity 3T MRI system was tangible and very encouraging as we prepare to introduce our product to the MSK community.

We have many exciting activities planned for the coming year. Please visit our events page if you’re interested to learn where we will be exhibiting next.
