MSK Ultrasound of the Hip Joint
Join this comprehensive 3 part series on hip ultrasound. Each series of 1,5 hour will focus on a specific region of the hip. We will review the theory and practice ultrasound skills of several important osseous, cartilaginous, capsuloligamentous, myogenic, neurogenic, and vascular structures. We will not only have a look at normal anatomy, but also discuss some interesting pathology cases.
