This 90-minute online course is designed for healthcare professionals who are interested in developing expertise in detecting medial knee pain using musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound. Medial knee pain is a common complaint among patients and can have various causes, including ligamentous injuries, meniscal problems, osteoarthritis and tendinopathies.


  • Understand the anatomy and biomechanics of the knee joint in relation to medial knee pain.
  • Identify common causes of medial knee pain using MSK ultrasound, including ligamentous injuries, meniscal problems, osteoarthritis and tendinopathies.
  • Perform MSK ultrasound scans of the knee joint using appropriate scanning techniques and settings.
  • Interpret MSK ultrasound images of the knee joint to identify normal and abnormal findings.
  • Differentiate between various pathologies causing medial knee pain based on MSK ultrasound findings.
  • Perform dynamic examinations using MSK ultrasound to assess joint stability and movement.
  • Apply MSK ultrasound in clinical scenarios to diagnose and manage patients with medial knee pain.
  • Analyze case studies and apply practical tips to enhance their MSK ultrasound skills in detecting medial knee pain.

Why should you follow this online course?
Medial knee pain, including osteoarthritis, is a common complaint among patients, while medial collateral ligament injury is prevalent in athletes. MSK ultrasound is a valuable tool for assessing the (postero)medial knee structures, including the medial collateral ligament, medial meniscus, pes anserinus, baker cyst, and hamstring insertion injury. Ultrasound can help diagnose and differentiate these pathologies, guide interventions such as injections, and monitor treatment progress. It is preferred over blind injections due to its accuracy and safety. Learning advanced MSK ultrasound skills can enhance clinical expertise, patient outcomes, and practice efficiency, as well as offer a fun and exciting career development opportunity.

After completion you'll receive a digital SonoSkills Certificate of Attendance and proof of your CME points.
