Join Marc Schmitz in this online lecture where he'll guide you through the ins and outs of Doppler imaging. You will learn how to identify, quantify and interpret neovascularization in musculoskeletal injuries. Gain a deep understanding of the physics, pitfalls, artifacts, and best practices when using Doppler imaging. With Marc's tips and tricks, you'll become a skilled MSK sonographer and elevate your practice. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the best in the field!


  • Understand how neovascularization impacts musculoskeletal injuries.
  • Recognize clinical indicators of neovascularization.
  • Understand Doppler ultrasound principles: Learners should understand different types of Doppler ultrasound, principles of Doppler physics, and their application in MSK ultrasound.
  • Identify blood flow patterns: Learners should identify normal and abnormal blood flow patterns in MSK ultrasound using Doppler imaging, including patterns associated with inflammation and neovascularization.
  • Apply Doppler ultrasound in clinical practice: Learners should learn to integrate Doppler imaging in MSK ultrasound exams, interpret findings in the patient's clinical context, and use it to guide interventions, monitor treatment response, and report findings.

Why should you follow this online course
Doppler ultrasound is a valuable imaging modality for musculoskeletal injuries as it allows for the detection of neovascularization, the growth of new blood vessels, which is associated with inflammation and tissue repair. Scientific studies have shown that Doppler imaging can improve the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries, particularly those involving soft tissues such as tendons, bursa’s, capsules and ligaments. Additionally, Doppler ultrasound can help clinicians monitor the progress of healing and guide interventions such as injections and surgery. By having knowledge of Doppler ultrasound and its application in musculoskeletal injuries, clinicians can provide more targeted and effective treatment, resulting in better outcomes for patients, including reduced pain, improved function, and quicker recovery times. Doppler imaging is underestimated. Many clinicians believe it’s just a matter of pushing a button on the system. Yet, the reality is that lack of understanding is at the heart of inadequate MSKUS evaluations and finding misinterpretations.

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

Interested in alternative training options?
If you are interested in a more advanced level of diagnostic scanning, please attend the SonoSkills Advanced MSK Ultrasound Bootcamp. This advanced course will cover all upper and lower extremity joints.
If you wish to develop your skills and use ultrasound to guide interventions, and to target those zones of neovascularization which you have identified by using Doppler imaging, please attend our 2-day ultrasound-guided injections course. In this great, and highly rated course, you will learn to perform extremity joints injections on real cadaveric bodies.
