South African Musculoskeletal Imaging Group
Promoting Musculoskeletal Radiology in South Africa
The objective of SAMSIG is to facilitate the advancement of musculoskeletal radiology within South Africa among radiologists and other relevant disciplines.
While it is expected that most members are affiliated with the Radiological Society of South Africa, membership is open to all clinicians with a specific interest in MSK imaging.
SAMSIG in London ISS 2023
SAMSIG was well represented in London at the ISS All MSK meeting. In an attempt to broaden its global foorprint, the ISS invited affiliate societies to participate in this prestigious meeting. SAMSIG chairman Shaun Scheepers had the honor of sharing a short presentation highlighting the achievements of SAMSIG as well as the challenges we face. It was also a unique opportunity to promote our upcoming Vic Falls conference.

The South African Musculoskeletal Imaging Group (SAMSIG) was established in 2005 by a committed cohort of radiologists who possess a distinct focus on musculoskeletal imaging. Initially, the primary objective of the group was to enhance the standard of MSK imaging in South Africa to meet international benchmarks. During that period, no specialized subgroups of this nature existed within the RSSA, nor were there dedicated MSK fellowships, or MSK-specific meetings or congresses.
Presently, the group's primary objective is to foster the advancement of musculoskeletal imaging within South Africa among radiologists, as well as other interested disciplines.
Membership is open to all radiologists and clinicians who possess an interest in MSK imaging.
