Ultrasound Virtual Workshop | February 18, 2021 | Upper Limb Ultrasound-Guided Injection Procedures: Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist/Hand

Workshop Overview:

The following Upper Limb Ultrasound-Guided Injection Procedures Webinar will review upper limb (i.e. shoulder region, elbow region, wrist/hand region) injection procedures. The webinar will be a combination of didactic material specific to these injection procedures, actual videotaped examples of injection procedures (many of which are picture-in picture – show the probe/patient/physician positioning in one picture and the actual real time ultrasound Image in the other picture) and a simulated demonstration on a scanning model of the injection procedure set ups. Time will be provided for question and answer including repeat demonstration of an injection set up. The participant will receive a certificate of participation. Specific structures are listed below:


Shoulder region injection procedures to be covered:

  • Biceps tendon sheath
  • Biceps tendon
  • Musculocutaneous nerve block/hydrodissection
  • Subscapularis tendon
  • Subcoracoid bursa
  • Subcoracoid impingement injection
  • Outlet impingement injection/subacromial-subdeltoid bursa injection
  • AC joint injection
  • Supraspinarus/infraspinatus tendons, including diagnostic injections, PRP, and barbotage
  • Glenohumeral joint
  • Suprascapular nerve block and pulsef RFA at suprascapular fossa and spinoglenoid notch
  • Axillary nerve block at quadrilateral space

Elbow region injection procedure to be covered:

  • Common extensor and flexor tendons
