    A WORD FROM OUR FACULTY

    Jeff Strakowski, MD, Course Director "This is a comprehensive peripheral nerve ultrasound course designed to develop skills in diagnostic and therapeutic applications for peripheral nerves of the upper limb. The didactics will include assessment of both common and less common entrapment neuropathies. This course is designed for practitioners interested in peripheral nerve anatomy and disease and designed to gain skills in localization of diagnostic assessment and pathologic condition and approach to ultrasound guided needle procedures."

    Dr. Scott Primack "With advancing ultrasound technology, it would be inevitable that neurosonology would the next area of focus since the explosion of musculoskeletal ultrasound. Specialists in sports medicine, physical medicine, neurology, orthopedics and plastic surgery will want to participate in this course to learn the anatomic relationships of structures at nerve entrapment areas in the upper and lower extremities. The course will provide outstanding training to assist the clinician in indentifying the cause, degree of the loss of function and structural abnormalities at the site of disease/injury. With the emphasis on diagnostics, the increased understanding of the anatomic characteristics of peripheral nerves and the surrounding structures will optimize ones ability management and treat patients better than ever before."

    Amir Mahajer, DO, FAOCPMR "As an Interventional Physiatrist at a spine center, I see the sonographic analysis and blockade of nerves of the lower extremity as a highly desirable asset in the work-up of leg pain and paresthesia, e.g. lumbosacral radiculopathy mimickers. There is a growing need of skilled neuromuscular point-of-care ultrasound clinicians in the United States and internationally and this nerve course and the faculty go above and beyond teaching basic to advanced principles and practices of neuromuscular ultrasound that can be applied immediately when you return to your clinic. The ability to correlate a history and physical exam with point of care sonographic findings leads to more rapid diagnosis, treatment and return to function. I highly recommend this course to certified sonographers, practicing clinicians and in-training medical professionals."
