Overview

The Blended Peripheral Nerve Ultrasound Course is designed to provide a comprehensive approach to the use of ultrasound for the assessment and treatment of peripheral nerves. The Blended Education format provides flexibility while providing time and cost savings.

Begin with the self-paced online course: Taught by leading peripheral nerve and musculoskeletal ultrasound experts, the online course incorporates a comprehensive review of the sonographic appearance and recognition of upper and lower limb peripheral nerves, ultrasound guided injection techniques for peripheral nerve injections, regenerative medicine procedures, and the use of diagnostic ultrasound in conjunction with electrophysiologic techniques. The sonographic appearance of muscle for both diagnostic assessment and identification for chemodenervation will also be reviewed.

Then attend Scanning Skills Workshop: Join us in sunny St. Petersburg, FL for a Two (2) Day (11 Hours) scanning skills workshop featuring the industry lowest 3:1 participant to expert faculty ratio with standardized patient models and inanimate phantoms for interventional practice. Because performing ultrasound-guided interventions requires a strong knowledge base pertaining to sonoanatomy, pathology, and scanning and needle-guidance techniques, this course also offers the option to add on a 4-hour interventional cadaver lab with un-embalmed human cadaver specimens to allow the learner to immediately integrate the skills learned into clinical practice.

For the best ultrasound education experience, completion of the online course prior to hands on scanning is recommended.
