Event info

Overview:

This two-day workshop, designed for healthcare professionals with little to no ultrasound scanning experience, is the ideal introduction to performing diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound and ultrasound-guided injections. Workshop faculty, Dr. Greg Wilde, Director of Musculoskeletal Radiology at Lenox Hill Radiology, and Jamie Bie, Senior Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Specialist in the Department of Radiology at Columbia University Medical Center, are pioneers in the field of MSK Ultrasound.  In addition to extensive lecturing and hands-on teaching, Dr. Wilde and Jamie Bie have developed the comprehensive Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound eCourse for Pegasus Lectures.  

Participants will learn the normal and abnormal appearance of the anatomical structures of the upper and lower extremities in addition to scanning techniques and image optimization. Topics covered include an overview of basic ultrasound physics, step-by-step protocols of the peripheral joints, case presentations of pathology, and an introduction to the set-up and technique for ultrasound-guided injections. Hands-on scanning sessions with live models provide ample instructor-guided practice of scanning techniques.

Objectives:

  • Identify normal musculoskeletal anatomy encountered during MSK ultrasound imaging
  • Demonstrate scanning protocols for shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, ankle/foot, and   peripheral nerve ultrasound examinations
  • Describe anatomical targets and landmarks key in identifying MSK structures
  • Demonstrate proper transducer placement and system optimization to generate diagnostic ultrasound images
  • List the indications, benefits, and limitations of MSK ultrasound applications
  • Demonstrate the set-up and technique necessary for the performance of upper and lower extremity ultrasound guided MSK injections
  • Demonstrate the use of inanimate phantoms in learning "in-plane" and "out of plane"injection techniques

 Highlights:

  • Combination of didactic and live scanning lectures to maximize retention of MSK Ultrasound concepts and interventional techniques
  • The course text is the fully illustrated textbook of MSK Ultrasound protocols, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound: A Comprehensive Guide to MSK Imaging and Interventional Techniques, 1stEdition
  • Participants receive a code for 25% off the Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound eCourse
  • Limited registration with 3:1 student to instructor ratio for hands-on scanning
  • Opportunity to use state-of-the-art equipment for musculoskeletal imaging
  • Continental breakfast included each morning.

Target Audience:

This workshop is designed for physicians, physician assistants, ultrasound technologists, sonographers, physical therapists, and healthcare professionals interested in learning or refining existing skills in musculoskeletal ultrasound and ultrasound-guided interventional procedures. Delivered in a highly interactive format with ample opportunity for hands-on practice with live models and phantoms, this program focuses on musculoskeletal fundamentals, scanning protocols, injection demonstrations, and case-based pathology lectures. Little or no musculoskeletal ultrasound experience is required as this workshop will provide the fundamentals to learn and improve the ability to recognize and treat dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system.

Credit Designation (CME):
SDMS CME credits are pending.
A maximum of 20 SDMS credits are offered upon completion of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound: A Comprehensive Guide to MSK Imaging and Interventional Techniques, 1st Edition.
