Webinar Series: MSK Ultrasound of the Shoulder Joint

In this comprehensive 3-part series on shoulder ultrasound, we will deepen your ultrasound knowledge of the shoulder region. Each session we will refresh and update your (sono)anatomy skills and discuss interesting shoulder pathology cases.

Objectifs pédagogiques

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

Part 1: Ventral shoulder
Long head of the biceps tendon, pectoralis major tendon, rotator interval, subscapularis, anterior labrum and several bursa's. Furthermore, we will discuss the coracoid process region incl. the short head of the biceps, coracobrachialis, pectoralis minor, coracoacromial ligament, coracohumeral ligament, coracoclavicular ligament, SC joint.

Part 2: Superior shoulder

Part 3: Dorsal and inferior shoulder
Infraspinatus, teres minor, dorsal and inferior labrum, axillary recess, quadrilateral space, suprascapular nerve.

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.

Certificate

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