Sports Ultrasound Conference

September 21-22, 2018

Location:

Biomedical Science Tower Lobby
203 Lothrop Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Program Overview

This conference is comprised of two parts: lecture part and hands-on skill lab workshop that includes cadaver workshop. The lecture topics covered include both advanced and basic topics. This includes discussions on the hydrodissection procedure, ultrasound-guided injections, and dynamic diagnostic ultrasound evaluation of various sports injuries. 

During the hands-on live portion of the course, participants will be able to perform both diagnostic and interventional ultrasound of all 6 major joints (shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, foot/ankle). Small groups are grouped based on experience level, with no more than 1-to-3 faculty-to-participant ratio. 
Pre-conference video lectures will be available for all participants, covering basic knowledge to get most out of the 2-day conferences. Viewing of these lectures is optional, but highly recommended for novice ultrasound users.

Learning Objectives

The goals of the conference are to promote knowledge and hands-on experiences of sports ultrasound participants. Participants will be able to properly identify indications of diagnostic sports ultrasound, and demonstrate increased proficiency in performing interventional sports ultrasound.
