This skills lab will educate the participant on MSK US scanning techniques for important lower extremity nerves that are involved in entrapment neuropathies. We will teach the approach for nerve hydrodissection/ nerve block techniques. The nerves to be identified will include: obturator, saphenous, sciatic, peroneal, and tibial.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and trace the major lower extremity nerves.
  • Learn the MSK ultrasound appearance of common entrapment or tunnelsyndromes.
  • Know the approach for nerve blocks and hydrodissection techniques for the lower extremity nerves.

Paid ticket is required.
