Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK)Sonography Skills Training Course

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK)

The program is designed for physicians and sonographers who currently perform ultrasound imaging and wish to extend their capabilities to incorporate musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging. This course will provide participants with a comprehensive introduction to musculoskeletal ultrasound. Optional Hands-on scanning will be incorporated into a half of day on the second day of the program.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
After attending this program the participant should be able to:

  • Identify ultrasound representations of common pathologies of the musculoskeletal system.
  • Discuss the capabilities and limitations of ultrasound in the musculoskeletal evaluation.
  • Identify normal anatomy and pathology from musculoskeletal ultrasound images.

LECTURE TOPICS
Anatomic areas typically covered in this course include:

1. Shoulder Joint Ultrasound
2. Ultrasound Elbow Joint
3. Ultrasound Wrist & Hand Joint

Musculoskeletal (MSK) Lower Extremity
