The Subacromial-Subdeltoid Bursa Injection & Aspiration Ultrasound-Guided Procedure Module starts with a review of the anatomy of the subacromial-subdeltoid bursa and relevant surrounding structures. It defines commonly agreed upon indications for subacromial-subdeltoid bursa injection and aspiration and reviews the sonographic anatomy and relevant anatomic landmarks that are instrumental to performing the procedure. Subacromial-subdeltoid bursitis, subacromial impingement syndrome, and rotator cuff injuries are discussed. The module discusses procedure preparation and sonographic technique for procedure execution, as well as reviews procedure tips, pitfalls, and potential complications. One is able to develop the requisite cognitive task awareness and visuospatial skills required to perform ultrasound-guided subacromial-subdeltoid bursa injection and aspiration through the two hands-on simulation points.
