Ultrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system is a rapidly growing specialty. Technologic advances and portability of systems are making ultrasound a valuable and cost-effective tool for the diagnosis and treatment of joint abnormalities. Presentations of proper scanning techniques with a group demonstration of scanning, a review of the pathology encountered, followed by personal hands-on instruction in scanning will make this an effective learning experience. During the hands-on workshop, attendees will be provided with an opportunity to learn proper imaging techniques for the shoulder, wrist, knee, and ankle. Learning will be facilitated through an interactive and practical format with the direct supervision of a knowledgeable and experienced faculty. Clinical protocols from Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit will be provided to each participant. A presentation on reimbursement for MSK US will also be provided during Friday's reception.
