Ultrasound Guided Interventional Pain Management Procedures is organized by Empire Medical Training and will be held on Apr 22, 2018 at Atlanta Marriott Suites Midtown, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is physicians who want to incorporate the latest technologies and improve their standard of care in their practice. Conference Description : Through this course, we present the most common orthopedic indications for which image guided (ultrasound) injections can be used. This includes acute, subacute, and chronic conditions. During this course study you will become proficient in performing these various injections for all the large joints (shoulder, hip, and knee), as well as sacroiliac joint and focused small joints. The education format will follow many of our other medical programs with lecture in the morning, followed by intensive hands on after lunch. The hands on portion will be conducted utilizing custom fabricated models created specifically for ultrasound guided musculoskeletal injections. In addition, ultrasound techniques will be performed on volunteer patients as conformation of anatomy and placement of the transducers. The benefits of learning Pain Management Injections using Ultrasound expand beyond increased reimbursement and include improved time of healing, reduced pain, and reduced recovery time due to the precise placement of the injections. Validated outcome measures (i.e. VISA scores) increase and can be used as an interpretive diagnostic tool in patient selection and course of treatment. Alternative uses for musculoskeletal ultrasound are also discussed including the expansion of platelet rich plasma injections in pain management settings. Conference Objectives are : • Gain proficiency and demonstrate correct technique for performing joint injections in the shoulder, hip, knee, sacroiliac joint and various small joint using ultrasound. • Learn "in-plane" and "out of plane" injection techniques and aspiration. • Comprehensive review of anatomical landmarks necessary for injection techniques. • Presentation and analysis of the various pathologies for the use of ultrasound guided injections. • Evaluation of ultrasound guided injections for the use in upper and lower extremity joints such the shoulder, hip, knee, sacroiliac joint and small joints. • Understand the principles of ultrasound physics and the fundamentals of musculoskeletal imaging as well as a diagnostic tool through interpretation. • Understand alternative uses for the musculoskeletal transducers such as platelet rich plasma injections and applying the course studies into a clinical setting. • Receive a thorough understanding of how to integrate ultrasound within your practice from a business and marketing perspective.
