Overview

Peripheral Nerve Ultrasound Virtual Conference is designed to provide a comprehensive approach to the use of ultrasound for the assessment and treatment of peripheral nerves including two separate tracks to address diagnostic and therapeutic applications for neurology-based and interventional-based specialty applications.

Interventional-Based Applications:
Provides a comprehensive discussion of the sonographic appearance and recognition of upper and lower limb peripheral nerves, ultrasound guided injection techniques for peripheral nerve injections, and regenerative medicine procedures.

Neurology-Based Applications:
Designed for practitioners interested in the comprehensive approach to diagnostic ultrasound for peripheral nerves and other neuromuscular conditions. The use of diagnostic ultrasound in conjunction with electrophysiologic techniques will be reviewed. The sonographic appearance of muscle for both diagnostic assessment and identification for chemodenervation will also be reviewed.
