Take your ultrasound experience to the next level with this cadaver-based course, intended for the intermediate physiatric ultrasonographer. This course will highlight joint injections, soft tissue injections, and identification of muscles commonly targeted in EMG or spasticity management. A combination of didactic lectures coupled with hands-on guided procedures using cadaveric specimens and dry lab stations will be used to advance your skill set. Expert faculty will guide small groups in performing the most common ultrasound guided procedures for a physiatrist.

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the value and limitations of ultrasound as a diagnostic and interventional tool.
- Produce an optimal ultrasound image of specific structures in live patients and in a cadaver for preparation for an ultrasound guided injection by demonstrating a command of knowledge over transducer orientation and adjusting ultrasound picture for depth, focal zone, gain, time-gain compensation, frequency, and beam steering.
- Accurately direct a needle towards targeted structures using MSK ultrasound.
- Accurately palpate specified bony landmarks and soft tissue structures required for a comprehensive musculoskeletal physical exam using MSK ultrasound for feedback.
- Accurately identify needle insertion points based on surface anatomy required for electrodiagnostic and spasticity management injections.
Who Should Attend
Physicians who care for patients with neurologic or musculoskeletal diseases and have an intermediate knowledge of ultrasound.
Prerequisite Note: It is strongly recommended that attendees already have fundamentals of ultrasound education from an AAPM&R introductory ultrasound course or from another organization/institution.
