Joint & Soft Tissues Ultrasound Course

Ultrasound is an extremely valuable tool for evaluating joint and soft tissue injuries, including strains or sprains of muscles, tears in ligaments and tendons, fluid in joints, fractures and dislocations.

For doctors working in ED, ultrasound enables you to go much further in your assessment than is possible with clinical skills alone. Our Joint & Soft Tissues Ultrasound Course is designed to provide emergency doctors with a comprehensive understanding of ultrasound imaging techniques for joint and soft tissue evaluation. Other clinicians, such as physiotherapists, sports medicine physicians, and general practitioners working in minor injuries units, will also find the course useful.

Next Course Date: 5th June 2023

Fee: £350

Location: Online, or Face-to-face at St Olav’s Court, 25 Lower Road, Canada Water, London, SE16 2XB

Course Times: 9:00am – 5:00pm

Joint and Soft Tissue Ultrasound Course

How is the Joint & Soft Tissues Ultrasound Course taught?

Our course is led by clinicians who have extensive experience in the management of musculoskeletal disorders in busy emergency departments and physiotherapy practice.

The course is a combination of theoretical lectures and practical hands-on sessions. During the practical sessions, you will have the opportunity to practice your skills on live models and simulators with pathologies. This will help you develop confidence in your abilities and improve your skills in joint and soft tissue ultrasound imaging.

Knee Ultrasound Course

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:

  • Handle an ultrasound machine in the context of joint and soft tissue injuries
  • Identify injury patterns in soft tissues and joints
  • Assess joints for dislocation and confirm reduction
  • Identify fluid in joints and use ultrasound to guide aspiration
  • Use ultrasound to detect fractures and confirm reduction after manipulation
  • Assess inflamed skin for cellulitis, an abscess or necrotising fasciitis
