Pragmatic MSK Ultrasound: Scanning the Shoulder, Elbow & Knee to Identify Pathology
Renowned SonoSkills educator Marc Schmitz teaches anatomy, sonoanatomy, technical scanning skills and pathologies common to the shoulder, elbow and knee.
You’ll learn MSK ultrasound scanning skills that you can use on your next patient to make a confident diagnosis and expedite the right treatment plan for a more rapid recovery! Marc Schmitz teache how to:
- Use handheld ultrasound with effective scanning techniques for joints
- Visualize the shoulder systematically to assess the rotator interval
- Examine the common extensor tendon to look for pathology in the elbow
- Scan the patellar tendon to identify injuries to the knee
SonoSkills is Europe’s leading musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) education provider. Join founder and educator Marc Schmitz to deepen your ultrasound knowledge of three regions prone to injuries. Marc helps you hone your scanning technique and interpretation skills.
Affordable and easy to use, handheld ultrasound is reinventing patient care by looking under the skin with high-definition visualization of anatomy! Rapid imaging of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints – both at rest and in motion – helps to diagnose or rule out musculoskeletal pathology with great accuracy. What’s more, MSK ultrasound is painless, non-invasive, low-cost and highly effective. Attend this webinar to build your diagnostic confidence.
Marc Schmitz teaches pragmatic MSK ultrasound scanning and imaging skills to clearly visualize and effectively diagnose sprains, strains, tears and other conditions related to soft tissues in three joints: the shoulder, elbow and knee. By exploring evidence-based content, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how to use handheld ultrasound to improve your diagnostics skills to get patients on the right treatment plan on their first visit.
Marc Schmitz is joined by Dr. Oron Frenkel, MD, Emergency Physician and Chairman of the Clarius Medical Advisory Board.

Marc Schmitz, MSc
During his MSc. at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Marc’s interest in functional human anatomy grew tremendously while dissecting and studying cadavers. It was here that his interest in observing functional human anatomy in “real-time” peaked, which led to the start of embracing musculoskeletal ultrasound. After completing numerous courses and attending conferences on the topic, he started developing his own course and SonoSkills was formed in 2010. Since then SonoSkills has taught its courses in 30 countries. Marc’s team consists out of 22 expert trainers. He teaches, next to managing SonoSkills, the foundational course and some intermediate level courses. Marc has a special interest in the shoulder joint.
Oron Frenkel, M.D., M.S.
Dr. Oron Frenkel completed his MS and MD simultaneously at the University of California Joint Medical Program in Berkeley and San Francisco, completing his residency in Emergency Medicine followed by a fellowship in Point-of-Care Ultrasound at Alameda County Medical Center in Oakland, California. He moved to British Columbia with the goal of increasing use of point-of-care ultrasound across the province, especially among rural practitioners. An avid educator, Dr. Frenkel is constantly evaluating the best teaching methods for disseminating this technology, how to measure competency in its practice, and its effects on outcomes for individual patients. Dr. Frenkel serves as Chairman of the Clarius Medical Advisory Board.
