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, Jamie Bie, RMSKS, RDMS, RVT, Senior Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Specialist in the Department of Radiology at Columbia University Medical Center and Dr. Greg Wilde, Director of Musculoskeletal Radiology at Lenox Hill Radiology, are pioneers in the field of MSK Ultrasound. In addition to extensive lecturing and hands-on teaching, Jamie Bie and Dr. Wilde 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. 


  • 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
  • Understand 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 "in-plane" and "out of plane" interventional techniques using an inanimate Phantoms


  • Combination of didactic and live scanning lectures to maximize retention of MSK Ultrasound concepts and interventional techniques
  • Limited registration with 4:1 student to instructor ratio for hands-on scanning
  • Continental breakfast served both mornings.
  • Fully illustrated course text “Musculoskeletal Ultrasound: A Comprehensive Guide to MSK Imaging and Interventional Techniques, 1st Edition” available for purchase. Additional SDMS credits available.
  • 25% off “Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound eCourse” offered to participants interested in learning from home at their own pace

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):

  • 12 SDMS credits 
  • An additional 20 SDMS credits are available  upon completion of cme questions in course text
