Welcome to the Diagnostic Champions' Challenge on Musculoskeletal Network!

Designed to test the knowledge and medical diagnostic skills of physicians and other healthcare professionals, Musculoskeletal Network's Diagnostic Champions' Challenge was created to educate and entertain. Can you recognize and determine the appropriate treatment for a patient's malady quickly and correctly? Test your clinical knowledge and diagnostic skills by playing in previous rounds and see how your score matches up with other players!

It's easy to play – we've put together sets of multiple choice diagnostic dilemmas to test your acumen: we show you the problem, you diagnose it or make management decisions about the disorder – but you'll only have up to 60 seconds for each question. Each time you answer correctly, you'll win points based upon the level of difficulty. See how well you can do against your peers' scores!

Are you ready for the next Challenge?

Our next live Diagnostic Champions' Challenge will take place on Psychiatric Times - play in each week for a chance to win an ounce of gold (yes, real gold)! Sign up now to be reminded when the games begin.

    Is the "Prayer Sign" a Sign of Arthritis? (Closed)

    The level of difficulty gets a bit higher in this second round of cases and questions, where arthritis often is confused with other rheumatologic conditions. Can you identify the disease features that differentiate the various forms of arthritis?
