Workshop Description

The SDSC '23 Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Pre-Conference Workshop is a basic to intermediate-levelworkshop to introduce participants to not only bedside ultrasound techniques of common upper and lower limb structures, but also ultrasound-guided injectable therapeutics like viscosupplementation and platelet-rich plasma. Bringing together sports physicians and radiologists from various hospitals across all 3 healthcare clusters, the workshop will cover both the clinical and technical aspects of ultrasonography of all major joints. During our small group practice sessions on simulated patients, participants will be grouped according to their pre-workshop familiarity level with MSK ultrasound, enabling faculty to customize teaching to the group's needs. Faculty to participant ratio is also kept at optimum (maximum 1:4) to allow ample exposure for each participant to gain hands-on experience.

1. Understand basic ultrasound physics and knobology
2. Appreciate clinical application of ultrasound in evaluation and management of MSK injuries
3. Identify common sonoanatomy and pathology of major upper and lower limb structures
4 Acquire guided hands-on ultrasound scanning experience in small group sizes
5. Learn and practice ultrasound-guided injection techniques
