Essentials of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound: Diagnostic and Interventional Skills

A 3 Day Hands-on Course
About this Workshop
This musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging workshop focuses on ultrasound principles and operation, including presentations of proper scanning techniques with demonstration of those techniques. Along with a review of sonographic imaging of normal anatomy, there will be a review of pathology encountered followed by personal hands-on instruction in scanning. To complete the course, intervention techniques will be discussed and demonstrated with a hands-on lab. The combined 3 day program makes this an effective learning experience to improve the provider’s technical competency and patient outcome. The hands-on workshop will be offered in two tracks. The Introductory Track is designed for those with little or no experience while the Intermediate Track is designed for those with some experience with MSK Ultrasound. Attendees will be provided with an opportunity to learn proper imaging techniques for the shoulder, elbo, wrist, hip, knee and ankle. Learning will be facilitated through an interactive and practical format with the direct supervision of our knowledgeable and experienced faculty.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this program,
participants will be able to:
  • Describe scanning techniques for the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle.

  • Recognize common pathological structures visualized in the joints studied.

  • Demonstrate performance of ultrasound scanning protocols of
    joints on live models.

  • Learn and perform interventional techniques assisted by ultrasound guidance.
