About


This one-day course aims to provide a comprehensive overview of common musculoskeletal ultrasound studies of the extremities. The course will consist of didactic lectures by local and international expert faculty structured to equip participants with an understanding of musculoskeletal sonoanatomy and systematic scanning protocols of the shoulder, hand and ankle. Core lectures are supplemented with lectures on various advanced topics and supervised hands-on ultrasound scanning workshops with live models.
Participants will have ample opportunity to practise scanning with experts and ask questions. Participants will also be able to interact with various leading industry vendors who will present their latest ultrasound scanners for participants to practise on during the hands-on workshops.
This course will be of interest to healthcare professionals who evaluate and treat patients with various musculoskeletal disorders, including radiologists, clinicians, sonographers and trainees. Those without experience in musculoskeletal ultrasound and those wishing to improve their skills are both welcome.
Previous versions of the course have consistently been highly rated with strong positive feedback by participants who found the course interesting, of high quality and a great learning experience. For this edition, advance lectures on ultrasound of the wrist and MSK elastography are included.
