Event Overview
Welcome message:

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in Hemophilia, presented by UC San Diego School of Medicine, is a 2 ½ day hands-on course developed to provide training in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) specific to hemophilic joint disease. The objective of the course is to enable hemophilia physicians to use MSKUS as a point-of care imaging tool to assist with the diagnosis and treatment of joint pains. The course is geared towards hemophilic joint disease to recognize joint bleeding, synovial hypertrophy and synovitis, cartilage degradation, osteochondral lesions and other structural joint abnormalities.

Leading MSK ultrasound experts will cover ultrasound scanning, sonoanatomy, and sonopathology pertaining to hemophilic joint disease through interactive lectures, case presentations, round table discussions, and advanced MSKUS imaging techniques including MSKUS examination of hemophilic joints. This program is currently the only hands-on scanning course that provides comprehensive training and experience in musculoskeletal ultrasound in hemophilia.

This program is offered multiple times annually, and is held in San Diego, California at the Hemophilia & Thrombosis Treatment Center at UC San Diego Health.

We recommend that you download and watch web modules 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 prior to attending the course.

Target Audience

This educational program is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and physical therapists involved and/or interested in MSKUS as point-of care imaging tool to assist with diagnosis and treatment of joint pains in people with hemophilia. Other healthcare professionals involved in hemophilia clinical care may benefit from this education program as well. Pediatric practitioners welcomed; though readings mainly apply to adolescents and adults.


Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

Describe MSKUS basics and knobology

Operate an ultrasound machine

Describe sonoanatomy of ankles, knees and elbows

Apply standard transducer positions for hemophilia joint ultrasound

Distinguish bloody from non-bloody effusions

Perform a diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound recognizing hemarthrosis, synovitis and structural abnormalities (meniscus, tendons, ligaments)

Quantify synovial hypertrophy and synovitis by Power Doppler

Quantify cartilage health and osteochondral lesions

Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center at UC San Diego Health

The Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center has cared for patients with hemophilia since its founding in 1989. It later became one of approximately 130 federally funded Hemophilia Treatment Centers, with a mandate to reach out to all patients with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders in the community in order to improve and specialize their care, as well as to ensure and afford access to life-saving clotting factors.

The mission of the Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center is to provide state-of-the art care to our patients with a team of specialized and highly trained physicians, nurses, physical therapists and social workers. This includes:

Access to and appropriate use of clotting factors

All-around medical care focused on the needs of adolescent, adult, and aging patients with hemophilia, including care for hemophilic arthropathy, osteoporosis, cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition, the center works closely with the Owen Clinic and the Liver Center to ensure that patients with hemophilia and HIV and/or hepatitis B and C virus receive appropriate treatment.

State-of the-art research for the hemophilia community, with opportunities to participate in clinical trials studying new long-lasting clotting factor products, bypassing agents for patients with inhibitors, as well as studying joint disease and cardiovascular disease in hemophilia. This effort has the ultimate goal to create new knowledge for patients with hemophilia, advance the field and improve care paradigms.
