Challenging Cases with Discussion
Increase the participants’ knowledge to perform and/or interpret peripheral nerve ultrasound examinations.
State the basic fundamentals of ultrasound physics and demonstrate appropriate optimization of system controls.
Recognize anatomy and ultrasound characteristics of the nerves and surrounding tissue to assist with management of focal neuropathies
Assess and diagnose focal neuropathies using high frequency ultrasound techniques
Identify common and challenging nerves using high frequency ultrasound.
Outline the standard approach for common and uncommon peripheral nerve blocks and interventions.
Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, scan techniques, and interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic and treatment accuracy.
Physicians, clinicians, and sonographers involved with performing diagnostic ultrasound and/or interventional techniques relating to peripheral nerves of the upper and lower extremity. Participants may include (but are not limited to) PM&R, sports medicine orthopedics, anesthesia, family practice, neurology,and rheumatology.
