- Ultrasound of Psoriatic Dactylitis and Enthesitis—speakers George Bruyn, MD, PhD, professor of rheumatology at Reumakliniek Flevoland, Lelystad, The Netherlands, and Natalie Faith, MD, RhMSUS, RMSK, a rheumatologist at Florida Medical Clinic, Land O’Lakes, will review the anatomy and important ultrasound features of psoriatic arthritis and how to assess multiple entheseal sites, as well as the extensor and flexor tendons of the fingers and toes;
- Advanced Musculoskeletal Physical Exam Skills: Diagnosis of Common and Uncommon Shoulder and Knee Disorders—speaker Jean Gillies, MD, a rheumatologist at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, will provide training in basic and advanced exam techniques, and how to interpret the findings to make accurate diagnoses of soft-tissue shoulder and knee disorders, which often lack gold standard screening tests. She will demonstrate how to use a goniometer to measure joint range of motion and how to evaluate patients for office-based, palpation-guided periarticular injections to reduce symptoms and improve joint function; and
- Synovial Fluid Analysis and Crystal Identification—speakers Brian Mandell, MD, PhD, and Mathilde Pioro, MD, both rheumatologists at the Cleveland Clinic, will address synovial fluid analysis. Anyone who lacks confidence in performing synovial fluid analysis, which is used to definitively diagnose gout and pseudogout, will benefit from hands-on training in this important skill, says Dr. Manno. This wet-lab workshop includes polarized microscopes for each participant.
