Doctors Winter, Richardson, and Matsen do a terrific job presenting Shoulder Ultrasound.  I think this is a wonderful resource for ultrasound students and practicing sonographers to learn about shoulder ultrasound.  Being that this is not a skill that is usually covered in a general ultrasound curriculum, this topic is usually acquired in the field.  This presentation is excellent in that it discusses the reasons for shoulder ultrasound as well as portraying the pertinent anatomy not only with schematic drawings, but corresponding human models that are labelled, and corresponding ultrasound images.  It then discusses the views and techniques used to acquire the necessary images for diagnosis.  It also discusses pathologies that can be seen.  I would definitely guide my students here if they were interested in learning about some musculoskeletal ultrasound, specifically the shoulder site.
