Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injection and Aspiration for Arthritic Conditions and Hemophilia (August 2019)
Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injection and Aspiration for Arthritic Conditions and Hemophilia, presented by the UC San Diego School of Medicine has been developed as an educational opportunity to provide training in ultrasound-guided intra-articular needle placement, to perform joint injections and aspirations. Many practices caring for patients with orthopedic conditions, sports injuries or hemophilia have introduced musculoskeletal ultrasound for non-invasive management of painful joints. Adding training to perform needle placement into joints using ultrasound guidance will greatly enhance providers' ability to manage joint pains by aspiration of joint fluid/blood as well as placement if intra-articular injections.

Activity Name: Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injection and Aspiration for Arthritic Conditions and Hemophilia (August 2019)
Description: Ultrasound-Guided Joint Injection and Aspiration for Arthritic Conditions and Hemophilia, presented by the UC San Diego School of Medicine has been developed as an educational opportunity to provide training in ultrasound-guided intra-articular needle placement, to perform joint injections and aspirations. Many practices caring for patients with orthopedic conditions, sports injuries or hemophilia have introduced musculoskeletal ultrasound for non-invasive management of painful joints. Adding training to perform needle placement into joints using ultrasound guidance will greatly enhance providers' ability to manage joint pains by aspiration of joint fluid/blood as well as placement if intra-articular injections.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the benefits of guided versus unguided intra-articular injections.
  • Describe the indications and contra-indications of performing ultrasound guided intra-articular injections.
  • Perform ultrasound-guided needle placement into joints.
  • Identify sonographic target interfaces for accurate joint injections.
  • Operate an ultrasound machine to include beam steer and optimization techniques for needle visualization.
  • Use the Color Flow and Power Doppler to visualize vessels.
  • Describe various approaches to access the intraarticular space for needle placement based on underlying joint pathology.
  • Describe sterile techniques for needle placement.
  • Describe advantages and limitations of current intraarticular treatment modalities for pain relief.
