Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound - Blended Course 2023 is organized by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute (GCUS) Inc. and will be held from Nov 06 - 07, 2023 at Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute, St. Petersburg, Florida, United States of America.
Blended Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training Course provides participants a comprehensive introduction to musculoskeletal ultrasound. These courses are taught by leading musculoskeletal ultrasound experts that incorporate fifteen (15) months of access to comprehensive online lectures and interactive case presentations through an online course, plus (2) Two Days (12 Hours) scan-only workshop featuring a 3:1 participant to faculty hands-on scan ratio with live models and inanimate phantoms. These courses are specifically designed for physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals who need musculoskeletal ultrasound training. For the best ultrasound education experience, completion of the online course prior to hands-on scanning is recommended.
• Increase the participant's knowledge to perform better 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.
