Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Nerve Injections in an MSK Practice

Topics:

  • Indications for peripheral nerve injections
  • Transducer selection and image optimization
  • Nerve anatomy
  • Ultrasound characteristics
  • Pre-procedural considerations
  • Needle selection and injection techniques
  • Upper Extremity Ultrasound-Guided procedures: suprascapular nerve injection, neuropathy of the upper extremity - median nerve, radial nerve, radial tunnel syndrome, posterior interosseous nerve entrapment, radial nerve branches, cubital tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel injection, ulnar nerve block, carpal tunnel injection, ulnar neuropathy at Guyon's canal, peripheral nerve tumor, and median nerve hamartoma
  • Lower Extremity Peripheral Nerve Injections: Stump neuromas, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve block, common peroneal neuropathy, common peroneal nerve hydro-dissection, tibia-fibular joint ganglia, superficial peroneal neuropathy, deep peroneal neuropathy, tarsal tunnel syndrome, tibial nerve, Baxter's neuropathy, lateral plantar nerve injection, and Morton's neuroma injection

 

Objectives

Upon completion of this enduring material activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:

  1. Increase the participant's knowledge to better perform and/or interpret MSK ultrasound examinations
  2. List indications for performing ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve injections for MSK applications
  3. Demonstrate scanning protocols for performing ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve injections for MSK applications.
  4. Identify normal nerve ultrasound characteristics
  5. Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, techniques & interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic/treatment accuracy
