Overview

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


Teaching Team

What You’ll Learn

  • Discuss the normal and abnormal imaging characteristics of the male and female pelvic organs, major vessels, retroperitoneum and urinary tracts.
  • Demonstrate independent and collaborative clinical decision making to perform the pelvic ultrasound procedure (transabdominal and transvaginal for female pelvis), differentiate the sonographic appearance of normal structures from pathologic conditions and to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of disease
  • Acquire hands-on ultrasound scanning skills of the abdomen include transabdominal and transvaginal for female pelvis and perform ultrasound examination proficiently in their day-to-day clinical environment
  • Demonstrate confidence to perform and interpret pelvis ultrasound scans, and communicate findings clearly and accurately with the radiologists
  • Demonstrate confidence to perform and interpret ultrasound scans of the groin/inguinal region to rule out hernia or non-hernia pathologies.
  • Explain the significance of clinical tests and complimentary modalities relevant to pelvic systems

Who Should Attend
