Sports Ultrasound Workshop

Print

Saturday • May 9, 7:30am – 5:15pm
Directors: Marwa Ahmed, MD and David J. Cormier, DO, DPT

Location: Boston Marriott Cambridge

 

In this special one-day program, participants update their understanding of musculoskeletal ultrasound in sports medicine, learn about the most important recent advances in regenerative medicine of the hip and shoulder, and reinforce these new principles with a hands-on workshop guided by leading experts from Harvard Medical School. This is an opportunity to learn and gain hands-on experience with:

  • State-of-the-art protocols for the sonographic evaluation of shoulder and hip injuries
  • Tips and tricks for improved scanning
  • Best practices for ultrasound-guided injections of orthobiologics to the hip and shoulder
