About Us

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.
