Webinar: Ultrasound and intervention of cervical and thoracic spine

In this one-part episode we will discuss ultrasound of the cervical and thoracic spine and how to perform minimally invasive procedures for different pathologies. We will refresh and update your (sono)anatomy skills and discuss interesting pathology cases.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Cervical and thoracic spine anatomy
  • Cervical and thoracic spine sonoanatomy
  • Transducer positions to scan static and dynamic tissues
  • Pathology recognition of the Cervical and thoracic spine pathologies
  • How to perform interventional ultrasound guided procedures in the Cervical and thoracic spine

Topics

  • Anatomy and sonoanatomy of spinous process, cervical facets, transverse process, evaluation of trapezius, elevator scapula tendon, multifidus and how to perform injections on facets and neuroforamen.
  • Anatomy and sonoanatomy of brachial plexus and peripheral nerves.
  • Anatomy and sonoanatomy of spinous process, thoracic facets, evaluation of multifidus and thoracolumbar fascia.
  • Demonstration how to do injections on thoracic facets.

Content

The aim of 1-part course is deepening the ultrasound examination of cervical and thoracic spine. 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.

Certificate

After completion of the full webinar you'll receive a digital Certificate of Attendance.
