Sports Ultrasound

The Orthopedic Sports Medicine fellow will complete a formal Sports Ultrasound curriculum including didactics and hands on instruction in scanning techniques of the shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, foot/ankle, and select non-musculoskeletal topics related to sports medicine. The curriculum follows the recommendations from the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine.

The fellow will also be exposed to routine ultrasound guided injections and more advanced ultrasound guided percutaneous orthopedic interventions including tenotomy, carpal tunnel release, and regenerative medicine procedures. The UI Sports Medicine Ultrasound Lab is accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM).
