Why should you follow this online course?
MSK ultrasound is a valuable tool for diagnosing and treating trochanteric pain, which is a common condition encountered in clinical practice. MSK ultrasound is particularly useful because it allows for dynamic examination of the area and can identify underlying causes of pain, such as tendonitis, bursitis, or tears. While other imaging techniques such as MRI and X-ray may also be useful in certain cases, MSK ultrasound is often preferred due to its ability to provide real-time images and guide therapeutic interventions. Overall, MSK ultrasound can significantly improve patient outcomes by allowing for accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment of trochanteric pain.

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