There has been significant growth in the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound in the U.S. as rheumatologists discover its usefulness in the evaluation of regional pain syndromes, inflammatory and crystalline arthropathies, as well as for injection guidance. As a consequence, there is a growing need for more advanced educational opportunities for providers who use ultrasound to increase their knowledge of sectional anatomy, hone their image acquisition skills, and gain deeper insight into the pathological processes affecting tendons and joints.
To that end, the ACR created the Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course for Rheumatologists with Interventional Cadaver Workshop—Intermediate specifically for rheumatologists who are using musculoskeletal ultrasound in their practice and are ready to expand their skills and bring these benefits to their patients.
With an expert faculty providing the latest advances in the technology and application of musculoskeletal ultrasound, the course combines lectures and practical hands-on exercises, highlighting the sonographic appearance of pathological processes in each of the major joint areas to help attendees better evaluate and manage their patients’ pain and disease states. This intensive three-day course includes hands-on sessions conducted on patient models with prescreened findings rather than normal models, giving attendees the opportunity to not only sharpen their skills in image acquisition but also to demonstrate pathologic findings under supervision.| | | Next → | Single Page
