Subacromial-Subdeltoid Bursa Injection & Aspiration: Procedure Module
This Ultrasound-Guided Subacromial-Subdeltoid Bursa Injection & Aspiration: Procedure Module will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of how to perform ultrasound-guided subacromial-subdeltoid bursal injection and aspiration. The Course explores the use of ultrasound to detect bursal fluid and clinical indications for performing the procedure. Subacromial-subdeltoid bursitis, subacromial impingement syndrome, and rotator cuff injuries 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 subacromial-subdeltoid bursa injection and aspiration.
