Course Description: The use of musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) has increased amongst rheumatologists in the United States over the last 5 years, but we still trail Europeans and others in this regard. MSKUS complements the physical examination by allowing for superior visualization of synovitis and erosive changes compared to conventional radiography, and provides detail comparable or supplementary to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Relatively few rheumatologists have received training to use this modality. There are very few MSKUS courses focused on the needs of rheumatologists and the patients and problems that they see. We feel that there is a significant need on a regional and national level for a beginner’s course for rheumatologists and associated health care professionals.
Students who consider themselves intermediate learners (based on scanning experience and prior coursework) should identify themselves as such on the registration form. We will keep these students together in the small hands-on sessions with instructors for more advanced teaching. We have also added a couple of more advanced lectures to the syllabus, though beginner students will be able to hear these as well.
