Webinar: MSK Ultrasound of the Shoulder Joint

Join this comprehensive 3 part series on shoulder ultrasound. Each series of 1,5 hour will focus on a specific region of the shoulder. 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.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Shoulder anatomy
  • Shoulder sonoanatomy
  • Transducer positions to scan static tissues
  • Scanning dynamical shoulder movements
  • Pathology recognition of several shoulder pathologies

Content

The aim of this 3 part course is deepening the ultrasound examination of the shoulder. 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.
