MSK Ultrasound of the Hip Joint in the Athletic, Rheumatologic, Orthopedic and Aged Patient

This 90-minute online SonoClass will teach you several ways in scanning the hip joint from an anterior and posterior approach. We will discuss the anatomy, the biomechanics, and pathophysiology. This online lecture will make you a better sonographer as you will learn the sonoanatomy, technical scanning details and sonopathology. Furthermore, it will discuss a few ultrasound-guided injection techniques.
