"If we had a patient who came in with rotator cuff diagnosis without identifying the specific muscle involved, we would do Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and we would be able to be more specific with our Therapy." - Cindi A. Prentiss, PT

Appropriate for PTs, OTs, MDs, DOs, Nurse Practitioners, Chiro, Healthcare Professionals.

Program Overview

This special track is for hand specialists or professionals with special interest in wrist/hand and upper extremity. A comprehensive presentation of basic principles of ultrasound and the normal sonoanatomy of the upper extremities that includes wrist and hand, elbow and shoulder. Didactic lecture for each joint is followed by lab demonstration and practical by the participants. After a foundational presentation of normal sonoanatomy, image optimization, image orientation, and an image interpretation algorithm, systematic protocols for shoulder, elbow and hand/wrist.

Emphasis to the Hand and Wrist will be given. Demonstration of the established scan protocols via didactic sessions are coupled with hands-on practice sessions giving the student adequate opportunity to be initially exposed to handling the ultrasound transducer, accurately and efficiently obtaining and labeling images, and developing interpretation skills.

The student has in-depth knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy, and this will be valuable as you begin to appreciate standard orientation of the anatomy on ultrasound. Students may be asked to present images for review and critique.
