Clinical Procedures Workshops

Ultrasound Guided Joint Injections

Evidence shows ultrasound-guided joint injections are more accurate than landmark-guided injections, but are they always indicated? Our workshop will help you determine when you can improve your patient’s outcomes by using ultrasound to guide your musculoskeletal injections and provide you extensive hands-on practice on knee and shoulder models with experienced faculty. 

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

1:30 - 4:30 p.m. (CME433) or

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

8:00 - 11:00 a.m. (CME434)


Note: This workshop will be taught using animal products (i.e., pig feet, pork shoulder, chicken).

From attending this session, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the basic principles of ultrasound imaging, equipment, functionality, aseptic technique and injectate selection for ultrasound-guided pain procedures.
  • Develop scanning techniques to optimize musculoskeletal windows for ultrasound guided injections.
  • Practice joint injection techniques using models.
  • Establish appropriate billing and coding protocols for performing billable injections.
