A world-class faculty, a comprehensive agenda, and a fabulous location make the Hands-on Diagnostic and Interventional MSK Ultrasound Course a must attend event for 2016.

The AIUM has partnered with the Andrews Research & Education Foundation to present this 4-day course designed to review the application of MSK ultrasound for performing diagnostic studies and guiding interventional procedures in the upper and lower limbs.

Through didactic lectures and hands-on demonstrations with cadavers and live models, participants will learn about common pathologies and relevant ultrasound-guided procedures for the shoulder, elbow, hand-wrist, hip, knee, and ankle-foot.

This course has been approved by the American Society of Anesthesiologists as satisfying the categorical requirements to be included with the Approved Didactic and Technical Skills courses that can be used towards the Application section of the UGRA Portfolio program.

The AIUM designates this live activity for a maximum of 21.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
