Join this comprehensive 3 part series on shoulder ultrasound. Each series of 1,5 hour will focus on a specific region of the shoulder. We will review the theory and practice ultrasound skills of several important osseous, cartilaginous, capsuloligamentous, myogenic, neurogenic, and vascular structures. We will not only have a look at normal anatomy, but also discuss some interesting pathology cases.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
- Shoulder anatomy
- Shoulder sonoanatomy
- Transducer positions to scan static tissues
- Scanning dynamical shoulder movements
- Pathology recognition of several shoulder pathologies
