Overview :
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 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. This is Highly Recommended for Those Interested in Performing Ultrasound-guided Procedures/interventions Such as Joint Aspirations and Injections.

Objectives :
• Increase the participant's knowledge to better perform and/or interpret MSK ultrasound examinations.
• List the indications, benefits, and limitations of MSK ultrasound for sports medicine injuries, physical medicine & rehabilitation, and rheumatology applications.
• Demonstrate proper transducer manipulation and system optimization to produce diagnostic images.
