Why Join ISS?

The International Skeletal Society brings together leaders in musculoskeletal science, education and clinical practice. We are international and multidisciplinary.  ISS members represent over 30 countries. We are radiologists and pathologists as well as surgeons and radiation oncologists. Our journal is Skeletal Radiology, the most important research publication specializing in musculoskeletal anatomy, diseases and derangements. Outreach activities bring expert teachers to all corners of the globe. The ISS annual meeting covers every aspect of musculoskeletal radiology and pathology during a 2-day Members Meeting and 3-day Update Course. We create opportunities for leadership, collegiality and collaboration within the community of national societies specializing in musculoskeletal science.

Musculoskeletal Core Lecture Series

We are excited to announce and make available a Musculoskeletal Core Lecture Series! This is a series of 20-30 minute lectures created for trainees in radiology, delivered by some of the best teachers from the International Skeletal Society and the Society of Skeletal Radiology.


Skeletal Radiology:
Journal of the ISS

The journal provides for the dissemination of current knowledge and information dealing with disorders of the musculoskeletal system including the spine. While emphasizing the radiological aspects of the many varied skeletal abnormalities, the journal also adopts an interdisciplinary approach.

Outreach Program

The ISS Outreach Program aims to provide high quality education in the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal disorders in countries where exposure of physicians to high quality teaching may be limited by financial and/or geographical constraints (i.e. in "developing" countries).
