9th Annual UCLA Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course and Hands-On Workshop
Activity Details
Activity Name: 9th Annual UCLA Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course and Hands-On Workshop
Needs Assessment:

The UCLA Department of Radiological Sciences, in collaboration with lead physicians from the departments of rheumatology, orthopaedics and sports medicine, is proud to offer a comprehensive interdisciplinary musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound hands-on learning experience. The MSK Ultrasound Course and Hands-On Workshop will review pertinent aspects of upper and lower extremity ultrasound critical for clinical application. This weekend course will include, in addition to basic MSK ultrasound of joints, current topics such as MSK ultrasound intervention, ultrasound of peripheral nerves, ultrasound of muscle, pediatric sports ultrasound, and MSK ultrasound economics. A multidisciplinary approach will be emphasized through interaction with physicians from various subspecialties. The course also features live, split-screen video demonstrations of basic MSK ultrasound scan techniques essential for appropriate clinical application. In addition, the interactive hands-on workshop will provide ample opportunity for participants to practice techniques learned in the lectures via focused, small group training with subspecialists. Two concurrent tracks will be available (introductory and intermediate tracks), each offering a more personalized lecture and hands-on training experience tailored to the participant’s particular skill level and experience with MSK ultrasound.

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of the course, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand basic MSK anatomy pertinent to ultrasound
  • Perform basic MSK ultrasound exams of the major joints of the upper/lower extremity
  • Identify advantages/disadvantages of MSK ultrasound as an imaging modality
  • Describe both the unique and complimentary roles of ultrasound examination
  • Recognize transducer and required equipment selection
  • Describe normal findings and common pathology on ultrasound of the major joints
  • Recognize the main MSK ultrasound imaging pitfalls and artifacts
  • Perform various dynamic maneuvers during an MSK ultrasound examination
  • Become familiar with the spectrum of MSK ultrasound-guided interventional procedures
