Ultrasound Webinar: MSK Ultrasound in Physiotherapy – Bone Integrity
Join Dr. Greg Fritz as he explores the role of ultrasound in assessing skeletal injuries, and how learning the right skills allows you to pinpoint key findings that do not appear on other imaging techniques.
The main questions we need to ask ourselves when performing an ultrasound on a bony structure are:
- Is there a lesion or a fracture in the bone?
- What is the type of that lesion (e.g., displacement, avulsion, compression)?
- Is the healing process occurring correctly or in a non-union fashion?
- What is the impact of the lesion on the patient’s lifestyle?
Physio MSKUS Specialist
Greg Fritz, PT, DPT, RMSK
Greg has over 34 years of specialty level physical therapy experience. He began his career in Anacortes through Island Hospital and now is the owner of 3 outpatient sports and industrial injury clinics that also provide patient focused general MSK injury rehabilitation. 13 years ago, Greg was introduced to the idea of diagnostic MSK ultrasound imaging from an uncle who was an internist and an innovator with Sonosite in cardiac and vascular sonography. Greg was provided his first scanner to explore the value in his practice. From that point, and after many hours practicing on his kids with gel and an anatomy book, Greg began looking at injuries and the echotexture that tissues undergo during the process of healing. Today, Greg offers diagnostic imaging to his patients and medical professionals in his community. All of the clinics that Greg owns are on islands and there is real value in providing high resolution soft tissue imaging to this population. Greg is passionate for the service product of MSK POCUS and is mission-driven to see it find wings within his profession.
