Course Description:
Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Live Training Course provides participants a comprehensive introduction to musculoskeletal ultrasound. These courses are taught by leading musculoskeletal ultrasound experts that incorporates comprehensive lectures on upper and lower extremity applications for diagnostic and ultrasound guided injection/aspiration techniques. Live demonstrations, and interactive case presentations are also included. Extensive hands-on scanning is provided for upper and lower extremity applications featuring a 3:1 participant to faculty hands-on scan ratio with live models and inanimate phantoms. An optional interventional human cadaver lab can also be added to this course and is highly recommended for those interested in performing ultrasound-guided procedures/interventions such as joint aspirations and injections.

The Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound course can also be combined with the 2-day Advanced/interventional or Regenerative Medicine MSK program. The combined program offers a discounted tuition and enables the participant to further expand skills and knowledge while at the same time consolidate travel expenses.
