Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training for Hemophilia and Other Arthritic Conditions (August 2019)
Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training for Hemophilia and Other Arthritic Conditions, presented by UC San Diego School of Medicine, is a 3-day hands-on course developed to provide training in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) for evaluation of hemophilic joint disease, but also other arthritic conditions and musculoskeletal abnormalities and syndromes. The main objective of the course is to enable physicians and other care providers to use MSKUS as a point-of-care imaging tool to assist with the diagnosis and treatment of joint pains. In addition, the course has specific elements geared towards hemophilic joint disease to recognize joint bleeding, synovial hypertrophy and synovitis, cartilage degradation, osteochondral lesions and other structural joint abnormalities. The course also includes a teaching module pertaining to the Joint Tissue Activity and Damage Exam (JADE), a validated ultrasound imaging protocol for hemophilic joints
