MSK Ultrasound Course

Location: Conference Centre, Wrightington Hospital

Date: 5/11/2008 - 5/11/2008


Aimed at Physiotherapists in Private Practice.

Imaging muscle, soft tissue and bone surfaces makes ultra-sound imaging particularly useful for delineating the interfaces between solid and fluid-filled spaces and therefore is extremely useful in assessing sporting injuries of the upper limb. Live, real-time images, where the operator can dynamically select the most useful selection for diagnosing and documenting changes and equally enabling rapid and confirmed diagnoses frequently makes it scanning method of choice.

The purpose of this course, being run by two eminent consultants, is to assist in our understanding of both the theoretical and practical applications specifically of the limb we commonly see in private practice.

Those choosing to enrol will also have the benefit of assistance in being able to locate and appreciate bio-mechanical structures coupled with the high ratio of machines to operators ensuring maximal practical familialarity of operation.

The learning outcomes listed below are centred around clinical benefits but for those wishing to ultimately purchase an ultrasound scanner this course will provide not only” hands-on” but also the opportunity to conduct a comparative assessment of all the various scanners available.

With the benefits of this course diagnostic ultrasound might then be imported into every other area of your practice.
