About Our MSK Ultrasound Course

musculoskeletal-ultrasound-wrist

What Does the Course Cover?

By the end of this course, you will be able to understand how normal ligaments, tendons, joints, bone, muscle, fascia layers and skin appear with ultrasound and how these appearances are affected by common injuries and infections.

The course covers:

The normal appearances of musculoskeletal tissues and how these are affected by ultrasound settings and probe angulation (anisotropy).

The value of dynamic imaging, observing structures during movement

The use of ultrasound in:

  • Fracture diagnosis and assessment of reduction
  • Dislocation assessment and assessment of reduction
  • Tendon and ligament disruption (Achilles’ Tendon, ankle injury, knee injury)
  • Joint fluid assessment and aspiration.
  • Soft tissue infection, diagnosis of cellulitis and abscess formation, judging suitability for surgical drainage. Diagnosis of necrotising fasciitis.

What Skills Will You Develop?

You will learn how to use high frequency probes for MSK tissue assessment.

You will learn how to identify fractures in ultrasound, to judge the need for reduction and whether reduction is successfully achieved.

You will learn how to assess the shoulder for a shoulder dislocation and rapidly judge if it has been successfully reduced.

You will learn how to look with ultrasound for important tendon structures affected by common injury patterns.

You will learn how to identify fluid in joints and to use ultrasound to guide aspiration.

You will learn how to scan inflamed skin in order to identify the presence of cellulitis or an abscess or necrotising fasciitis.

How Is the Course Taught?

The emphasis of this course is on practical scanning.

The day will consist of an alternating pattern of lectures with live demonstrations alternating with practical sessions.

The lectures will be given by clinicians with extensive experience of musculoskeletal ultrasound.

The practical sessions will use a wide range of ultrasound equipment including portable and handheld devices.

There will be normal individuals available for scanning.
