The MSK Board Preparation package includes the MSK didactic lectures and the Point of Care MSK Ultrasound Physics eCourse. This package is designed for physicians preparing for the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA) MSK Ultrasound exam. This package assumes that participants are proficient in MSK Ultrasound scanning, and therefore, does not include the MSK ScanLabs.
MSK Didactic Modules
Each section begins by covering normal anatomy, followed by module(s) covering the pathomechanism of acute and/or chronic injury or disease is covered in pathology modules with case examples of abnormal sonographic appearance to aid in the recognition of musculoskeletal pathology.
This package does not include the MSK ScanLabs.
MSK Didactic Sections include:
Soft Tissue Characterization
Wrist, Hand, and Fingers
Lower Leg, Ankle, and Foot
Point of Care MSK Ultrasound Physics
This 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.
