Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in Hemophilia: Joint Anatomy and Basics of MSKUS (Pre-Course Modules)

This series includes nine web-based modules designed to provide foundational information on the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound in hemophilia. Topics include anatomy, joint mechanics and physiology, basic physics of ultrasound imaging, normal sonoanatomy, Power Doppler, and MRI vs MSKUS in hemophilia.

These modules are available as streaming videos, totaling just over 6 1/2 hours for completion, and are available free of charge. Specific information on each module, including accreditation and faculty details, are included via the links below.

The Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in Hemophilia: Joint Anatomy and Basics of MSKUS modules are highly suggested advance viewing for attendees of the Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in Hemophilia hands-on workshops, but are appropriate for anyone wishing to expand their knowledge in this area.

We recommend that you download and watch web modules 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 prior to attending the course.
