SITizens Learning Credits

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.

What You’ll Learn

The topics for male pelvis will include common indications for ultrasound, gross and sonographic anatomy of the prostate, sonographic anatomy, scanning techniques, normal and abnormal findings of the prostate and seminal vesicles and technical pitfalls of prostate sonography.
