Overview

The Peripheral Nerve Ultrasound: Interventional & Neurology Applications online course is designed to provide a comprehensive approach to the use of ultrasound for the assessment and treatment of peripheral nerves including diagnostic and therapeutic applications for neurology-based and interventional-based specialty applications. The interventional-based topics includes a comprehensive discussion of the sonographic appearance and recognition of upper and lower limb peripheral nerves, ultrasound guided injection techniques for peripheral nerve injections, and regenerative medicine procedures. The neurology-based topics are designed for practitioners interested in the comprehensive approach to diagnostic ultrasound for peripheral nerves and other neuromuscular conditions. The use of diagnostic ultrasound in conjunction with electrophysiologic techniques and the sonographic appearance of muscle for both diagnostic assessment and identification for chemodenervation are also reviewed.
