Beatty Teaches Ultrasound at National Conference

The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPMR) Annual Assembly kicked off last week on October 11th in Denver, Colorado. The week-long meeting serves as the leading event for continuing medical education in the PM&R field and is the largest annual gathering of physiatrists in the country. RSI’s Dr. Nicholas Beatty served as teaching faculty for musculoskeletal ultrasound in a course titled Ultrasound-guided Lower Limb Injection Workshop, which took place last Thursday.

 

Dr. Beatty, a registered musculoskeletal sonographer (RMSK), instructed attendees in proper technique and safety considerations for ultrasound-guided injections of the hip, knee, and ankle. Dr. Beatty noted, “Ultrasound is a powerful extension of the physical exam that can provide additional diagnostic information in treating sports injuries. I also use ultrasound to maximize the safety and efficacy of interventional procedures, and ultimately get patients feeling better in the short-term but equally important—long-term.”

 

In addition to teaching at the AAPMR, Dr. Beatty will be overseeing ultrasound workshops throughout the year with the New York Society of PM&R, where he serves as Chair of the Workshops Committee.
