Registration is now open!

This course reviews musculoskeletal ultrasound of the extremities including anatomy, scanning protocols, and pathology.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course will be of interest to radiologists, sonography technologists, and health care providers in the fields related to musculoskeletal system. Those without musculoskeletal ultrasound experience, as well as those wanting to refine skills are both welcome.

OBJECTIVES

  • Become familiar with the anatomy of the extremities
  • List the basic components of extremity ultrasound scanning technique
  • Scan a subject using ultrasound and recognize major anatomical structures
  • Recognize common pathology of the musculoskeletal system as seen at ultrasound

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Concurrent Introductory and Intermediate Tracks with live scanning demonstrations
  • Lectures from both tracks will be recorded and made available after the course
  • Hands-on scanning workshops will be in small groups with model supervised by a faculty
  • Additional independent scanning open to participants Saturday afternoon
  • Opportunity to use and compare several ultrasound machines from various companies
  • Continental breakfast included each morning
  • Optional one-on-one 1-hour personalized scanning session with a faculty
  • Optional Sunday afternoon Interventional Program: lectures and hands-on workshop using animal model

Tracks

Introductory

Suggested for participants who are developing scanning techniques and joint scanning protocols.

Intermediate

Suggested for registrants who have attended prior musculoskeletal ultrasound courses, who are able to demonstrate normal anatomy, and who are comfortable with common pathology (i.e. those who have scanned > 100 patients).

Additional Optional Sessions

One-on-One Supervised Screening (Optional)

Reserve an add-on 1-hour Sunday scanning session (11 am – noon) with one-on-one supervision by one of the course faculty. This is a great opportunity to refine specific scanning skills ranging from fundamental to advanced. Registration is limited.

Interventional Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Program (Optional)

This add-on Sunday afternoon program (12:30 – 3 pm) includes didactic lectures covering joint and bursal aspiration/injection, tendinopathy, tenotomy, and PRP. The supervised hands-on interventional component will use an animal model (turkey breast and pig’s feet) to practice needle guidance.

Why You Should Attend

Technology Access

Use and compare ultrasound machines from a variety of providers. Additional, independent scanning open to participants each afternoon.

Learning Outcomes

  • Recognize common pathology for the musculoskeletal system as seen at ultrasound;
  • Become familiar with ultrasound-guided interventional techniques

Personal, Hands-On Experience

  • Limited registration ensures ample experience with the technology and close supervision
  • Optional 1-hour session provides one-on-one supervised scanning
