Kudos to SonoSite for hosting an outstanding webinar this weekend on musculoskeletal ultrasound, Diagnostic Shoulder Ultrasound, Part 2, featuring Dr. Antonio Bouffard. Dr. Bouffard is a senior staff radiologist in the division of musculoskeletal imaging at Henry Ford Hospital and is a consultant to NASA, the US Olympic Committee, and has also begun work with the PGA.
Dr. Bouffard's talk focused on the posterior structures of the shoulder including the infraspinatus, the posterior labrum, the teres minor, the spinoglenoid notch and the suprascapular nerve.
I also had a chance to review Part 1 with Dr. Ben DuBois, focusing on the anterior and lateral shoulder structures and pathology. This included the long head of the biceps tendon, the subacromial bursa, the supraspinatus tendon, as well as the subscapularis tendon and bursa.
Both presentations were incredibly informative and the knowlege gained will certainly enhance my in-clinic diagnostic and ultrasound-guided injection skills.
