High Resolution Imaging in Challenging MSK Examinations

Background information
Hip and pelvic area is a challenging area for ultrasound examinations.
See how high-resolution Matrix probes help in the systematic visualization and the assessment of these tendons and muscles.

Program

  • Hip & Pelvic ultrasound, Dr. Jan Veryser
  • Ultra high frequency imaging of superficial extremities, tendons, Prof. Dr. Karsten Knobloch,
  • Live Q&A
Learning Objectives
  1. Learn from Dr. Jan Veryser and Prof. Dr. Karsten Knobloch how to acknowledge the ultrasound anatomy of the hip and pelvic area and the visualization of these structures, to assess tendons and muscles with high resolution ultrasound imaging techniques, to acknowledge tips and tricks derived from long experience ultrasound scanning practice.
  2. Get practical tips from the examples discussed to increase your diagnostic confidence.
  3. In the question-and-answer session, you could find answers that you need.

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Karsten Knobloch, MD
Hand Surgeon, Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeon, General Surgeon, Emergency Medicine, Sports Medicine
Owner and President SportPraxis, Hanover, Germany

Background information
Prof. Dr. Karsten Knobloch is the owner of a special practice for tendon therapy and hand surgery in Hanover. He has been working at the Hanover Medical School for more than ten years and more recently as senior physician at the school. Prof. Dr. Karsten Knobloch is a member of the editorial board of the British Journal of Sports Medicine, principal reviewer of the American Journal of Sports Medicine and author of a large number of publications focusing on the Achilles tendon and prevention, which is one of this specialties. The support of national and international top athletes, especially from football, tennis and golf, is a major part of his practice. His other specialty is hand surgery with his special expertise in the treatment of Dupuytren's disease with collagenase injection, focused shock wave therapy and, if necessary, surgery.


Presentation: Ultra high frequency imaging of superficial extremities tendons
The focus of this part of the webinar will be on the visualization of superficial tendons of the upper and lower extremity and how high-resolution (>18MHz). Matrix ultrasound probes will help in the assessment of both diagnosis and severity of tendon degeneration. As such, the Matrix probes with 18/24/33MHz. as well as the hockey stick matrix probes in hand tendons, will be discussed. The beneficial application of Doppler modes like Power Doppler, Advanced Dynamic Flow (ADF) and Superb Microvascular Imaging (SMI) will be demonstrated on the Achilles and patella tendons. Furthermore, therapeutic examples where high-resolution ultrasound supports in the assessment of tendon response will be highlighted.
