Australasian Musculoskeletal Imaging Group

Providing a forum for the professional development of musculoskeletal imaging in Australia and New Zealand since 1992. 


On behalf of the executive committee and all members, welcome to the official website of AMSIG – the peak subspecialty MSK imaging organisation in Australia and New Zealand.

AMSIG was established by an enthusiastic group of radiologists and held their first Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) in Melbourne in 1992. From the beginning, the goal of our organisation has been to foster the development of MSK radiology in Australia and New Zealand and to provide a forum for members to discuss issues and ideas pertaining to the subspecialty, in a fashion marked by camaraderie among colleagues.

This has succeeded to the extent that AMSIG membership has grown substantially and the organisation is now recognised as one of the leading MSK groups worldwide. AMSIG has developed close relationships with fellow organisations such as the International Skeletal Society (ISS). In recognition of this, the prestigious journal Skeletal Radiology, recently became the official journal of AMSIG.

AMSIG has also been involved in international teaching via a collaboration with Radiology Across Borders (RAB) and other endeavours. RAB is an Australian charity that focuses on teaching key clinical skills to radiologists, doctors and medical imaging staff around the world, ensuring health professionals have the knowledge and training they need to literally save lives.

We’re passionate about the contribution AMSIG makes to those who diagnose injuries and disease based on the interpretation of medical imagery relating to bones, joints and associated soft tissues. We look forward to growing as an organisation both in Australia and New Zealand and indeed, throughout the world.

– Dr Tim Dickson, President
