UltraSoundFest: Student Physician MSK US Intensive

October 26

$50.00
Philadelphia , PA

Program Overview

The Student Ultrasound Workshop on Knee Imaging aims to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills in ultrasound assessment of the knee joint. Through a combination of didactic lectures, hands-on training, and case discussions, participants will gain proficiency in identifying normal anatomy, recognizing common pathology, and performing basic ultrasound-guided procedures related to the knee.

Program Outline

  • Introduction to Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
    • Basics of ultrasound physics
    • Equipment overview and settings
  • Anatomy of the Knee Joint
    • Review of knee joint structures
    • Identifying key anatomical landmarks on ultrasound
  • Ultrasound Imaging Technique
    • Scanning protocols for knee assessment
    • Image optimization and probe handling
  • Normal Ultrasound Anatomy of the Knee
    • Demonstration of normal knee ultrasound images
    • Hands-on practice sessions
  • Common Pathologies of the Knee
    • Overview of common knee pathologies
    • Ultrasound characteristics and imaging findings
  • Ultrasound Evaluation of Knee Ligaments and Tendons
    • Examination of ligaments (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL) and tendons (patellar, quadriceps, hamstring)
    • Interpretation of pathology and injury
  • Q&A Session and Wrap-Up
    • Opportunity for participants to ask questions and discuss key takeaways
    • Distribution of certificates of completion

 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the Student Ultrasound Workshop on Knee Imaging, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the Principles of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
    • Explain the basic principles of ultrasound physics and its application in musculoskeletal imaging.
    • Describe the equipment used for knee ultrasound and adjust settings for optimal imaging.
  • Identify Normal Knee Anatomy on Ultrasound
    • Recognize normal anatomical structures of the knee joint, including bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage, on ultrasound images.
    • Locate and identify key landmarks for accurate ultrasound assessment of the knee.
  • Recognize Common Pathologies of the Knee
    • Identify common pathologies affecting the knee joint, including ligament tears, tendon injuries, synovial effusions, and bursitis, using ultrasound imaging.
    • Describe the ultrasound characteristics and imaging findings associated with various knee pathologies.
  • Perform Basic Ultrasound Evaluation of the Knee
    • Perform systematic ultrasound scanning protocols to assess the knee joint comprehensively.
    • Apply appropriate ultrasound imaging techniques to optimize image quality and resolution.
  • Interpret Ultrasound Findings and Correlate with Clinical Presentation
    • Interpret ultrasound images of the knee to accurately diagnose and characterize pathological conditions.
    • Correlate ultrasound findings with clinical symptoms and physical examination findings to guide patient management.
  • Demonstrate Proficiency in Ultrasound-Guided Procedures
    • Demonstrate proficiency in performing basic ultrasound-guided procedures related to the knee, such as joint aspirations and injections.
    • Apply proper needle guidance techniques to ensure accurate and safe placement of the needle under ultrasound guidance.
  • Integrate Knee Ultrasound into Clinical Practice
    • Discuss the role of ultrasound in the assessment of knee pathology and its advantages over other imaging modalities.
    • Incorporate knee ultrasound findings into clinical decision-making and treatment planning for patients with knee-related complaints.
  • Engage in Lifelong Learning and Professional Development
    • Recognize the importance of continuing education and ongoing skill development in musculoskeletal ultrasound.
    • Identify resources and opportunities for further learning and skill enhancement in knee imaging and ultrasound-guided procedures.
