RMSK-Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints throughout the body. Clinical evidence and research supports using ultrasound as the first diagnostic test for numerous musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. Diagnostic ultrasound offers a number of important advantages compared to computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in terms of safety and effectiveness.
Diagnostic ultrasound is noninvasive and offers real-time imaging, allowing for examinations of structures at rest and in motion. This ability to capture the movement of musculoskeletalcomponents differentiates it from other imaging modalities and can permit more accurate diagnoses. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves, arthritis, inflammation and other musculoskeletal conditions.
In 2019, Dr. Jenn started the long process of learning diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound. She utilizes ultrasound heavily in her practice and goal is to be certified in RMSK by the end of 2021 and has acquired many different certifications.
The RMSK credentialing program is now accredited by ANSI under the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 17024 Standard.
About the Certification:
The Registered in Musculoskeletal® (RMSK®) sonography certification raises the standard of musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging worldwide and promotes best practices for enhanced patient safety. By earning the musculoskeletal ultrasound certification, physicians and advanced care providers gain a critical edge in promoting public safety in musculoskeletal ultrasound. These practitioners come from a variety of musculoskeletal ultrasound training background, but share a common goal of improving the practice of musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging.
