 2 day course

 

Birmingham, 18-19th June 2011

This two day course is designed for clinicians with little or no experience in diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging. It is aimed at physiotherapists, sports physicians, orthopaedic surgeons and rheumatologists, but may also be of interest to GPs, chiropractors and osteopaths.  The course is very much hands on, with delegates spending as much time as possible practicing the basic skills. The lectures are short and to the point, and practical tuition is in small groups with a high tutor to delegate ratio.

The course is not designed with radiologists and sonographers in mind, but those that have come on our course in the past have found it useful for those who have not had formal training in MSK.

The subjects covered include

Physics of ultrasound

Safety and training isssues

Basic scanning technique

Image optimisation

Imaging of musculoskeletal structures

Examination of the shoulder, knee and ankle joints.

Ultrasound guided injections
