Join our 90-minute online SonoClass taught by SonoSkills founder & trainer Marc Schmitz. You'll learn the dynamical shoulder ultrasound protocol for both foundational and advanced structures. Discover how to functionally activate specific structures, visualize them with MSK ultrasound, and learn to focus on important clues and findings. This SonoClass is perfect for clinicians who want to advance their ultrasound skills and knowledge of shoulder anatomy. Sign up today


  • Discussing topographic and sonogaphic anatomy of foundational and advanced structures in the shoulder girdle. These structures will be visualized in a moving and functional way.
  • Learning how to analyze clips in a structured and step by step approach by using the SonoSkills pathology checklist.
  • Understanding the value of realtime functional ultrasound guided examination.
  • Some of the things which will be discussed:
    • Muscle contractions: biceps brachii, pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, rotator cuff muscles, latissimus dorsi.
    • Impingements: sub coracoid, sub coroacobrachial, subacromial, sub coracoacromial, sub coracohumeral.
    • Stretching ligaments: coracohumeral, coracoacromial, coracoclavicular

Why should you follow this online course
Scanning the shoulder with ultrasound is not just about looking at it statically. Dynamic and functional ultrasound can provide valuable information on how the shoulder moves and functions during different activities. This helps to diagnose conditions like impingement and rotator cuff tears, which can be missed with static imaging. Having advanced skills in shoulder ultrasound allows for a more comprehensive assessment of the joint, which is important as the shoulder is one of the most commonly affected joints in MSK healthcare. By understanding the complexities of the shoulder joint and how it functions, healthcare professionals can provide better and more targeted care for patients.

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