Overview

Ultrasound plays a crucial role in the evaluation and management of patients with pelvic diseases and injuries. This 6-day interactive workshop will provide participants with the underpinning academic knowledge and clinical skills needed to undertake a range of gynaecological ultrasound examinations. 

The workshop will focus on indications, anatomy, scanning techniques/protocol, normal and abnormal findings involved in a pelvic ultrasound examination. Hands-on practical will be conducted in the afternoon sessions to supplement the didactic teaching. It is ideal for practitioners who wish to expand their scope of practice in pelvic sonography and can be taken as a single module for continuing professional development.

What You’ll Learn

In the workshop, participant will develop an understanding of a range of musculoskeletal examinations and demonstrate competency in sonography of the shoulder and other musculo-skeletal structures. Topics will include principles of musculo-skeletal ultrasound, common indications, protocol and scanning technique of the various upper and lower limb musculoskeletal structures. Students also develop an insight into the role of ultrasound and other supplementary imaging tests (X-rays and MRI) for the diagnosis of musculo-skeletal disease

On completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles and technical requirement of musculoskeletal imaging
  • Discuss the normal and abnormal imaging characteristics of the musculoskeletal structures (soft tissues such as skin, muscles, tendon, ligaments and nerves as well as bone)
  • Differentiate the sonographic appearance of normal structures from pathologic conditions
  • Acquire knowledge of musculoskeletal ultrasound include static and dynamic imaging, ultrasound guided musculoskeletal intervention and advanced imaging technique such as elastography
  • Understand the correlation between ultrasound and other imaging technique such as x-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Who Should Attend

  • Radiographers practising ultrasound
  • Healthcare professionals involved in ultrasound work (GPs, A&E Clinicians, Radiologists, Residents etc)
