Elevate your musculoskeletal ultrasound skills with SonoSkills founder & trainer Marc Schmitz. In this 90-minute online SonoClass, you'll discover several causes of subacromial pain. We'll explore the anatomy, biomechanics, and pathophysiology of the shoulder joint and teach you how to apply that knowledge to improve your scanning techniques. Plus, you'll learn about the relevance and technique of diagnostic ultrasound and how to perform ultrasound-guided injections. Join now!


  • Discovering the topographic anatomy of the subacromial region: discussing origins, insertions and the physical relationships between tissues.
  • Understanding the biomechanics of several interconnected structures.
  • Learning some common pathologies, injuries and pathophysiologic mechanisms in this region.
  • Understanding the sonoanatomical appearance of this whole subacromial region and passing structures.
  • Learning how to scan the most clinical relevant subacromial tissues correctly by using the SonoSkills Quality Checklist and thus creating great images.
  • Learning how to analyze subacromial pathology images in a structured and step by step approach by using the SonoSkills pathology checklist.
  • Understanding the value of realtime functional ultrasound guided examination.
  • Seeing a variety of pathology cases in this subacromial region i.e. impingement, SASD bursitis, supraspinatus tendinopathy and tearing, migration of the humeral head, etc.
  • Learning how to perform the most common ultrasound guided injection techniques to target the SASD bursa.

Why should you follow this online course?
MSK ultrasound of the subacromial region, including the supraspinatus and subacromial bursa, is a valuable tool for diagnosing and treating subacromial pain syndrome, a common condition affecting the shoulder. MSK ultrasound provides real-time visualization of the underlying structures, allowing for accurate diagnosis and localization of pathology. Ultrasound-guided injections of the subacromial region are preferred over landmark-based injections due to their increased accuracy and decreased risk of complications. Advanced MSK ultrasound skills not only improve patient outcomes and increase practice revenue, but they also offer a rewarding and fun challenge for professionals seeking to expand their knowledge and skills in this exciting field.

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