During the past decade, musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) has evolved into a separate imaging discipline. Physical medicine and rehabilitation was the first nonradiology specialty that embraced ultrasound methods in daily practice. MSKUS is an integral part of the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal problems. MSKUS is a powerful tool for assessing neurological conditions. However, these applications are not yet incorporated into routine neurological practice.

This course is designed to provide an overview of the upper and lower extremities musculoskeletal and peripheral nerve anatomy, discussing common pathology and its diagnosis. The procedural segment includes tutelage of common MSKUS procedures, regenerative medicine, cryotherapy, and chemodenervation.

This program, presented by the World Academy of Pain Medicine Ultrasonography (WAPMU) in collaboration with AAPM, is a 1-day cadaver workshop. The program provides over 9 hours of hands-on training.
