Continuing Medical Education (CME) Information
This course comprehensively reviews the application of musculoskeletal ultrasound for performing diagnostic studies and guiding interventional procedures in the upper and lower limbs. Expert faculty demonstrate the common pathologies and relevant ultrasound-guided procedures for patients presenting with regional complaints in the shoulder, elbow, hand-wrist, hip, knee, and ankle-foot. Core lectures are supplemented by faculty-supervised hands-on experience, both scanning live models and performing ultrasound-guided procedures on unembalmed cadavers. Attendees will have the opportunity to scan with the expert and ask questions while scanning.
The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME) for physicians.
The AIUM designates each activity for the number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ listed below. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
