SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

Ultrasound plays a crucial role in the evaluation and management of patients presenting with chronic musculoskeletal injuries. The course will provide participants with the underpinning academic knowledge and clinical skills needed to undertake a range of musculoskeletal ultrasound examinations. The course will focus on indications, anatomy, scanning techniques and protocol, normal and abnormal findings involved in a musculoskeletal ultrasound examination. Intensive hands-on practical sessions will be conducted to supplement the didactic teaching. It is ideal for practitioners who wish to expand their scope of practice in musculoskeletal sonography and can be taken as a single module for continuing professional development. 

Teaching Team

What You’ll Learn

Participants will develop and enhance the theoretical knowledge and advanced image interpretation as well as specialist scanning skills in sonography of the shoulder and other musculoskeletal structures. Topics will include principles of musculoskeletal ultrasound, common indications, protocol and scanning technique of the various upper and lower limb musculoskeletal structures. Participants will also develop an insight into the role of ultrasound and other supplementary imaging tests (X-rays and MRI) for the diagnosis of musculoskeletal 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
