Objectives

Upon completion of this activity the learner should be able to:

  • Increase the participants’ knowledge to perform and/or interpret peripheral nerve ultrasound examinations.
  • State the basic fundamentals of ultrasound physics and demonstrate appropriate optimization of system controls.
  • Recognize anatomy and ultrasound characteristics of the nerves and surrounding tissue to assist with management of focal neuropathies.
  • Assess and diagnose focal neuropathies using high frequency ultrasound techniques.
  • Identify common and challenging nerves using high frequency ultrasound.
  • Outline the standard approach for common and uncommon peripheral nerve blocks and interventions.
  • Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, scan techniques, and interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic and treatment accuracy.
