Webinar: 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 knee 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

Content

The aim of this 3-part course is deepening the ultrasound examination of the elbow. We will discuss (sono)anatomy, transducer positions and sonopathology positions on an intermediate level with adding more in-depth information and new positions to your foundational level knowledge and skills. We will review the theory and practice ultrasound skills of several important osseous, cartilaginous, capsuloligamentous, myogenic, neurogenic, and vascular structures. We will also share with you some interesting literature which you can study after the webinar to deepen your knowledge. All content is on an intermediate level.
