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 and complaints.
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 9 hours set aside for
live demonstration and scanning, and keeping the trainer to trainee ratio to a maximum of 1:4,
participants will have ample opportunities to practise during the Hands-on training sessions.
