Dr. Jeffrey A. Strakowski, MD is a Clinical Professor and Associate Director of Medical Education at the Ohio State University and OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital. He is also the attending physician for two Ohio State resident core rotations, as well as elective resident and intern rotations. He is on committees for ultrasound accreditation for both the AANEM and AAPM&R national organizations and has written 2 different textbooks on ultrasound as well as research papers and other textbook chapters.
Dr. Strakowski works with ultrasound technology for imaging soft-tissue musculoskeletal disorders, peripheral nerve entrapments, and injuries and for image-guided interventional procedures. His primary goal is to examine the peripheral nerves and other musculoskeletal structures; as these are not observable using conventional ultrasound, Dr. Strakowski is looking to ultra high frequency (UHF) ultrasound to fill this gap.
UHF ultrasound technology developed by FUJIFILM VisualSonics has been used in preclinical research applications since 1999. In 2016, the Vevo MD ultra high frequency ultrasound was approved for human use by the FDA. Using UHF ultrasound, Dr. Strakowski’s goal is to visualize peripheral nerves and other musculoskeletal structures in previously unseen detail.
