Why should you follow this online course?
MSK ultrasound of the hip joint has significant clinical value across many patient populations. In athletes, it can identify injuries that may affect performance and guide interventions to promote healing. In rheumatologic patients, it can help diagnose inflammatory arthropathies. In orthopedic patients, it can help guide joint injections and surgeries. In aging patients, it can help identify age-related changes and degeneration, and guide interventions to improve function and quality of life. MSK ultrasound is especially useful in the hip joint due to the limited access and complexity of the joint, and is often preferred over other imaging techniques such as MRI or CT scan. Staying on a foundational level limits your MSK ultrasound skills. Learning advanced techniques improves patient outcomes, expands your business, and makes work more fun.

After completion you'll receive a digital SonoSkills Certificate of Attendance and proof of your CME points.
