Experience Level: Intermediate
Contact Hours: 14
This continuing education seminar is a two day course designed to provide instruction in the generation and interpretation of rehabilitative ultrasound images as they relate to the pelvic girdle and low back stabilization. Both lecture and lab material will be presented that will allow the participant to immediately incorporate the use of rehabilitative ultrasound imaging into their evaluation and treatment plans for patients with diagnoses including lumbo-pelvic pain and instability.
This continuing education course comprises of lectures and labs that present both ideal and abnormal responses of real-time imaging of the transverse abdominals, rectus abdominis, deep multifidus, levator ani, bladder, and bladder neck. During labs, participants will be able to practice using machines provided by our co-sponsor, The Prometheus Group. An onsite representative from Prometheus will also be available to answer questions about the equipment.
This is an intermediate level rehabilitative ultrasound imaging course intended for therapists having a sound knowledge in training techniques for the local stabilizing muscles of the pelvic floor, transverse abdominals, and deep multifidi muscles. Prior coursework regarding the local stabilizing muscles is required.

2. Describe how rehabilitative ultrasound imaging fits into physical therapy scope of practice
3. Describe basic principles of physics that apply to ultrasound use
4. Describe safety issues and the ALARA principle concerning rehabilitative ultrasound imaging in physical therapy practice
5. List and appropriately use components of ultrasound machine
6. Generate, recognize, and interpret ultrasound images of the bladder base, pelvic floor muscles, transverse abdominal muscles, deep multifdi muscles, and rectus abdominis before and after contraction using transabdominal viewing methods
7. Demonstrate the ability to use ultrasound imaging in order to take measurements of diastasis rectus separations
8. Demonstrate the ability to use ultrasound imaging in order to take measurements relating to the transverse abdominus, deep multifidus, and the detrusor muscle
9. Save and transfer images and clips into multimedia presentations
10. Incorporate the use of rehabilitative ultrasound imaging into evaluation and development of treatment protocols for the lumbopelvic pain patient.
