MSK Ultrasound of the Elbow Joint
In this comprehensive 3-part series we’ll expand your knowledge around elbow ultrasound examinations. Each series of 1,5 hour will focus on a specific region of the elbow. Each session we will refresh your anatomy skills, learn basic and advanced sonoanatomy and discuss interesting elbow pathology cases! On top of that we'll share our favorite elbow ultrasound articles with you.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
- Elbow anatomy
- Elbow sonoanatomy
- Transducer positions to scan static tissues
- Scanning dynamical elbow movements
- Pathology recognition of several elbow pathologies
- Overview of the scientific evidence on topics of anatomy, sonoanatomy, pathology, sonopathology and technical scanning of the elbow joint
