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. Fresh frozen cadavers will be utilized for participants to practice procedure skills and pro-sected cadavers will be used to highlight details of anatomy. Hands-on procedure training will be accompanied by limited didactic lectures. Expert faculty will guide small groups in performing the most common ultrasound guided procedures for a physiatrist.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
