Why should you follow this online course?
MSK ultrasound of the ventral knee, including the quadriceps and patellar tendons, and the various bursae, is highly valuable in the evaluation of patients with knee pain. Ventral knee pain is a common complaint among patients, and jumper's knee is a common sports injury. MSK ultrasound can provide a dynamic evaluation of these structures, as well as guide diagnostic and therapeutic injections. Ultrasound-guided injections are preferred over landmark-based injections due to their increased accuracy and safety. Advanced MSK ultrasound skills can enhance a healthcare professional's diagnostic accuracy and treatment options, ultimately improving patient outcomes, business, and job satisfaction.

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