Certification in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging (Cert. MSKUS)
This course includes all of MSKUS - Module 1 Upper Extremity - Online and all of MSKUS - Module 2 Lower Extremity - Online. As an added bonus we also include a Guided Injections Presentation and Demonstration that is not available when purchasing the joints alone or the modules seperately.
This represents a significant savings and is available for $2799.
This course will give students a well rounded knowledge of Muskuloskeletal Ultrasound and all of it's applications.
For an individual to complete our Cert. MSKUS program and use the credentials Cert.MSKUS next of their names, must complete the entire program including: Module 1, Module 2, MSKUS Practical Workshop 1, MSKUS Practical Workshop 2, Pass the online and Practical Examinations. The practical examination is delivered in both MSKUS Practical Workshop 1 and 2.
That package, which includes the Live Workshops, can be found here: 01. MSKUS - Certification Completion Program - Online & Live
Taking an entire Module vs individual courses, gives you the opportunity to take the practical workshop which is included in both Module courses and provides you with a significant discount over single courses.
The program is divided into Module 1 (upper extremity) and Module 2 (lower extremity and lumbar spine). The student takes Modules 1 and 2 online followed by a Practical Workshop for each Module. Practical Workshop for each Module is 2 days for a total of 4 days. This is necessary to allow assimilation of the wide-ranging material and adequate practice scan sessions during practical workshops.
The Online Component of each module covers the following:
- Introduction to Sonography
- Normal MSKUS Presentation of the Joint discussed
- Demonstration of the MSKUS Protocol of the Joint discussed
- MSKUS Pathology of the Joint discussed
- Research materials, Protocols, Presentation handouts, exam questions, Course Certification
The Practical Workshop of each module covers the following:
- Demonstration and Practice of general structures
- Demonstration and Practice of various components of the Joint discussed
- Demonstration and Practice of the MSKUS Protocol of the Joint discussed
- MSKUS Pathology of the Joint discussed
- Protocols, Presentation handouts, exam, Live Course Certification
You can take Modules 1 and 2 in any order and there are no pre-requisites.
Included in this Program, and exlusive to this Program when purchased as a complete package, is MSKUS - Guided Injections - Online Course which provides students with an in depth introduction to Guided Injection Sonography which greatly enhances accuracy when performing injections.
Joints covered in this program are the following:
-Introduction to Sonography
-Sonography of the Shoulder (Live & Online)
-Sonography of the Elbow (Live & Online)
-Sonography of the Wrist/Hand (Live & Online)
-Sonography of the Hip (Live & Online)
-Sonography of the Knee (Live & Online)
-Sonography of the Ankle/Foot (Live & Online)
-Sonography of the Spine (Live & Online)
-Ultrasound Guided Injections (Online Only)
All exam fees are also included in the price of this package.
After a foundational presentation of normal sonoanatomy, image optimization, image orientation, and an image interpretation algorithm, systematic protocols for shoulder, elbow, hand/wrist, hip, knee, foot/ankle, and lumbar spine are presented.
Demonstration of the established scan protocols via didactic sessions are coupled with hands-on practice sessions giving the student adequate opportunity to be initially exposed to handling the ultrasound transducer, accurately and efficiently obtaining and labeling images, and developing interpretation skills.
The student has in-depth knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy, and this will be valuable as you begin to appreciate standard orientation of the anatomy on ultrasound. Students may be asked to present images for review and critique.
Worldwide, more and more healthcare professionals are tapping the well of diagnostic sonography—it is quickly becoming the standard of care for visualizing musculoskeletal anatomy.
Dr. Randy Moore is the leading authority in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging and has collaborated with Hands-On Seminars to provide a Comprehensive Certification Program following very specific standardized scanning protocols.
Dr Moore is dedicated to shortening the learning curve for Physical Therapists, Medical Practitioners, Medical Sonographers, Chiropractors, Physician Assistants and any allied health professional as they develop expertise in Musculoskeletal Sonography.
Randy E. Moore is a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. Since 1994, his work has focused entirely on using diagnostic ultrasound to evaluate the musculoskeletal system. His expertise is called upon by ultrasound manufacturers (GE, Sonosite,Ultrasonix, Esaote,Terason,Phillips) and teaching institutions (National Institute of Health, Beth Israel Hospital NY, Walter Reed, University of Dayton, University of Kentucky, Temple, and Loma Linda) throughout the United States.
Dr. Moore has published the best selling sonography book Sonography of the Extremities. He has continually improved and updated the book to demonstrate the most advanced approaches to scanning the extremities, while still defining its scope to be one of the most “user friendly” texts available today. The book is now available in Spanish and Korean.
Hands-On Seminars is delighted to offer this tremendous opportunity to its students and help them advance their professional careers to the next level!
