  • State the principles of sound generation and image processing.
  • Select the appropriate transducer for the various musculoskeletal ultrasound applications.
  • Optimize system controls for accurate display of the target anatomy.
  • Recognize normal ultrasound characteristics of bone, muscle, cartilage, tendons, nerves, and ligaments.
  • Identify commonly seen image artifacts and apply techniques to resolve.

Target Audience

Physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals at an entry level of performing and/or interpreting MSK ultrasound for the evaluation of Ligaments, Muscles, Nerves and Tendons. Physician participants may include (but are not limited to) those involved with specialties in: radiology, orthopedics, sports medicine, physical therapy, chiropractics, rheumatology, emergency medicine, internal medicine and family medicine.


The Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This course also meets CME/CEU requirements for ARDMS. Note: While offering the CME credit hours noted above, activities are not intended to provide extensive training or certification for exam performance or interpretation.


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

  1. State the basic fundamentals of ultrasound physics
  2. Demonstrate proper transducer manipulation to produce diagnostic images.
  3. Identify normal ultrasound imaging characteristics of musculoskeletal anatomy.
