Package 4: Introduction to MSK Ultrasound

This package was created to provide a strong foundational introduction to MSK Ultrasound. After viewing the Point of Care MSK Ultrasound Physics eCourse, participants view the MSK ScanLabs which provide detailed instruction on scanning technique and protocols for MSK imaging. A brief review of pertinent anatomy with attention to attachment and insertion points is presented at the beginning of each ScanLab section.

Included in the Introduction to MSK Ultrasound package:

  • Point of Care MSK Ultrasound Physics
  • MSK Ultrasound eCourse: ScanLabs

    Point of Care MSK Ultrasound Physics
    Eight module course builds the foundation for understanding and learning Point of Care (POC) Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound Physics for sonographers, physicians, and health care professionals with a need to practice MSK ultrasound. The modules teach physics from a unique perspective with direct clinical application to ultrasound using many analogies, animations, ultrasound images, and ultrasound videos. The modules cover ultrasound and wave fundamentals, imaging fundamentals, ultrasound system controls, image artifacts, basic Doppler theory, PW spectral Doppler, color Doppler, and ultrasound bioeffects and safety. The instructor for this course, Frank Miele, is a dynamic, world-renown lecturer who holds many patents and trade secrets in diagnostic ultrasound, with a unique ability to make seemingly very difficult concepts come to life and comprehensible.

    MSK Ultrasound: ScanLabs
    This collection of MSK ScanLabs provides a comprehensive review of the techniques and protocols for MSK Ultrasound. Each ScanLab section begins with a review of pertinent anatomy and a discussion of the importance of the patient history and clinical exam. Transducer selection and patient positioning is instructed prior to a step-by-step demonstration of the scanning protocol. When indicated, dynamic assessment is demonstrated. Attention is given to provide technical tips to aid in imaging optimizations and well as noting diagnostic parameters that should be included and/or measured if pathology is encountered.
