OVERVIEW

The UC San Diego Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Guided Joint Injections Educational Activities have been created to provide a comprehensive modular curriculum to teach point-of-care musculoskeletal ultrasound for the evaluation of ankles, knees, elbows, hips and spine, and to guide intra-articular needle placement for injections and aspirations. Small groups with a high faculty to participant ratio provide highly interactive learning environment with ample opportunity for hands-on practice with each other and patient volunteers. Course participants will learn basic ultrasound physics, how to operate ultrasound machines (including the use of small emerging small hand-held devices), sono-anatomy and sono-pathology of important arthritic conditions as well as ultrasound-guided joint injection techniques. The curriculum will also teach how to recognize joint bleeds and distinguish between simple and complex effusions, as well as the Joint Activity and Damage Exam (JADE), a validated joint ultrasound protocol for evaluation of hemophilic joints.

This program is offered several times annually, and is held in San Diego, California at the UC San Diego Health Hemophilia & Thrombosis Treatment Center at UC San Diego Health.
