Description

Synopsis

The Why, What, & How of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound This course has been designed to improve understanding of the uses of real time ultrasound in the field of musculoskeletal (MSK) rehabilitation, and introduce participants to the 'what' and 'how to' of MSK imaging. Duration: approx. 2-2.5 Hrs

Aims

This course aims to

Enhance awareness of the applications of ultrasound in differential diagnosis, in developing treatment direction, and in rehabilitation.

Provide a basic understanding of the physiological mechanisms by which ultrasound works, and it's interaction with different MSK tissues.

Improve practical skills through familiarisation with the user interface ('knobology') and keys for image optimisation.
