About this Program

Learn about ultrasound principles and operation, including presentations of proper scanning techniques with demonstrations of those techniques in this musculoskeletal ultrasound course. 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 MSK ultrasound course, a hands-on lab will discuss and demonstrate interventional techniques. The combined 3-day training program makes this an effective learning experience to improve the provider’s technical competency and patient outcome.

This hands-on workshop offers training based on your experience level. Attendees will learn proper imaging techniques for the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle. Learning is facilitated through an interactive and practical format with the direct supervision of our knowledgeable and experienced faculty.

Select courses will offer credits for Athletic Trainers accredited by the BOC (Board of Certification for Athletic Trainers) and for Physical Therapists accredited by the Florida Board of Physical Therapy.
