Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training for Hemophilia and Other Arthritic Conditions

January 29 - January 30

This 2-day hands-on course was developed to provide training in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) for evaluation of hemophilic joint disease, but also other arthritic conditions and musculoskeletal abnormalities and syndromes. The main objective of the course is to enable physicians and other health care providers to use MSKUS as a point-of-care imaging tool for diagnosis and treatment of joint pain. In addition, the course has specific elements geared towards hemophilic joint disease: recognition of joint bleeding, synovial hypertrophy and synovitis, cartilage degradation, osteochondral lesions and other structural joint abnormalities. The course also includes a teaching module pertaining to the Joint Tissue Activity and Damage Exam (JADE), a validated ultrasound imaging protocol for hemophilic joints.

Format: Interactive lectures, case studies, round table discussions, and hands-on scanning.
