Acromioclavicular Joint Injection & Aspiration: Procedure Module
This Ultrasound-Guided Acromioclavicular Joint Injection & Aspiration: Procedure Module will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of how to perform ultrasound-guided acromioclavicular joint injection and/or aspiration. The Course reviews relevant anatomy and explores the use of ultrasound to evaluate acromioclavicular joint pathologies and clinical indications for performing the procedure. Acute and chronic pathologic conditions that afflict the acromioclavicular joint are discussed, including osteoarthritis, blunt trauma, rheumatologic conditions, joint separation, and joint subluxation.
In-module questions and a final Mastery Test assess didactic knowledge. The patented SonoSimulator® will help you develop the requisite cognitive task awareness and visuospatial skills required to perform ultrasound-guided acromioclavicular joint injection.
