Biceps Tendon Sheath Injection: Procedure Module
This Ultrasound-Guided Biceps Tendon Sheath Injection: Procedure Module will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of how to perform ultrasound-guided biceps tendon sheath injection. The Course explores the use of ultrasound to evaluate biceps tendon pathologies and clinical indications for performing the procedure. Biceps tendon ruptures, tenosynovitis, tendinosis, partial tears, and tendon subluxation/dislocation are discussed.
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 biceps tendon sheath injection.
