Cathy Ridsdale 

Sonographer, BSc., CRGS, CRVS, RDMS (OB/GYN, ABD/Sm Parts, NEURO, Breast), RVT 


Cathy graduated from the Mohawk College Diagnostic Medical Sonography program in 1996. She worked clinically in Ontario for 10 years, then she moved to Cincinnati Ohio where she worked clinically then transitioned into an educator role. Her greatest accomplishment was the development of a new physics and instrumentation program which after 10 years boasts a cumulative 98% pass rate on the ARDMS board exam on first attempt. During her tenure at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College she also taught obstetrics, abdomen and vascular. Over the years she has had the pleasure of speaking at multiple conferences. Currently she has returned to clinical work in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Speaker

Lisa Billone 

Sonographer, BMRSc, DMS, CRGS, CRVS, RDMS, RMSKS, RVT 


Lisa Billone is a musculoskeletal sonographer at the Hamilton General Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario. She has been practicing MSK ultrasound for the past 10 years and has trained with world leaders in the field. Lisa is an MSK ultrasound instructor at both national and international courses and is continuously refining her knowledge and skills in this emerging field. Lisa also has a strong interest in MSK ultrasound research and has co-authored several articles and educational exhibits. She is currently developing an Enhanced Practice Certificate in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound for the OAMRS. 

Presentation description

The distal biceps tendon is commonly affected by tendinosis, tears, or associated bursitis. It is imperative to differentiate between partial and full-thickness tears for proper patient management. With knowledge of the distal biceps anatomy, proper imaging techniques, and awareness of potential pitfalls, ultrasound is becoming the modality of choice for an accurate diagnosis.
This webinar will illustrate the anatomy of the distal biceps tendon and show sonographers how to acquire optimal images and perform proper dynamic assessments. Pathological conditions and potential imaging pitfalls will be discussed. Pathologies will be presented in a case study format.
