Jeannine Noble, PT, MS, RMSK

Jeannine Noble received her physical therapy degree at AZ School of Health Sciences (AT Still) in 1999. In the final semester of school, she was introduced to musculoskeletal ultrasound and found it to be a unique specialty in ultrasound that incorporated the anatomy background of physical therapy. Although there was very little written about musculoskeletal ultrasound in 2000, she was fortunate enough to work with physicians who saw the benefits of this new diagnostic tool.

Jeannine has performed too many scans to count in multiple specialty practices including orthopedic, physical medicine and rehab, and podiatry. She has also done training for Healcerion, GE, Esaote, and Ezono. She has conducted trainings for private practices and large groups. She has worked on research projects at Midwestern University, AT Still, and various private entities.

Most recently Jeannine and her business partner, Malka Stromer, have been working with the faculty at Midwestern and AT Still helping to implement a Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) program. The goal of this program is to introduce ultrasound to osteopathic students and assist them in becoming proficient users of ultrasound for basic diagnostic and interventional procedures.
