Sponsored Product Demonstration: The Economics and Techniques of Ultrasound Shoulder Imaging 
MSK imaging continues to increase in volume as the population ages and people remain active well into their retirement. Continued emphasis on the appropriate, safe use of imaging and a value-based patient care model coupled with declining reimbursements are renewing the focus on lower-cost primary imaging solutions such as ultrasound. Learn how your practice can utilize technical advancements in this modality to improve the quality of care and increase referrals. During this informative presentation the use of MSK ultrasound will be demonstrated for the diagnosis, management, and treatment of shoulder pathologies. Ultrasound assessment allows the healthcare provider to view and quantify the shoulder joint while in motion to help make better decisions sooner.

Sponsored Product Demonstration: Elevating the Standard of Care for Patients with Lower Limb Amputation

As physiatrists, we are the team leaders and experts in the rehabilitation of individuals with limb loss. Our goal is to focus on restoring function and quality of life.
