Specifically designed for healthcare providers who are exploring point of care ultrasound to enhance the evaluation and management of the patients with upper and lower limb injury pathologies. Covering all the major joints, this course presents a systematic and focused assessment with ultrasound. Lectures are succinct and delivered in an interactive format. The participant will develop ultrasound pattern recognition of the major tendons, ligaments, and muscles surrounding these joints. The case discussions will focus on pathologies that are commonly encountered.
The Hands-on Training is the cornerstone of the program. The scanning protocols are adapted mainly from the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology guidelines. During these sessions, participants will be guided to perform bedside scans on volunteers. The scanning protocols and pearls and pitfalls of obtaining high-quality diagnoses are emphasized. With a trainer to trainee ratio to a maximum of 1:5, there is also ample time provided for participants to develop essential motor skills during the Hands-on training sessions.
