Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course

Our Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound course is intended to improve your skills in providing a safe and accurate assessment of soft tissue injuries and infections in the musculoskeletal system. Ultrasound is often more effective than X-rays when you have to manage patients with strains or sprains of muscles and supporting tissue, and with tears in the ligaments and tendons.
MSK Ultrasound is a valuable tool for doctors working in emergency departments, as well as for sports medicine specialists, general practitioners, and physiotherapists.

Next course dates: to be confirmed

Fee: £350

Venue: Terracotta Court (ground floor), 167 Tower Bridge Road, London, SE1 3LN

About Our Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course

MSK Ultrasound Course (wrist scanning)

What Does the Course Cover?

By the end of this course you will 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). It also covers the value of dynamic imaging and observing structures during movement, as well as the use of ultrasound in the following:

  • 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.
MSK Ultrasound Training (knee scanning)

What Skills Will You Develop?

You will learn how to:

  • Use high frequency probes for MSK tissue assessment.
  • Identify fractures in ultrasound, to judge the need for reduction and whether reduction is successfully achieved.
  • Assess the shoulder for a shoulder dislocation and rapidly judge if it has been successfully reduced.
  • Look with ultrasound for important tendon structures affected by common injury patterns.
  • Identify fluid in joints and to use ultrasound to guide aspiration.
  • Scan inflamed skin in order to identify the presence of cellulitis or an abscess or Necrotising fasciitis.
MSK Ultrasound Training (shoulder scanning)

How Is the MSK US Course Taught?

The emphasis of this course is on practical scanning.
The day will consist of an alternating pattern of lectures and practical sessions given by clinicians with extensive experience of musculoskeletal ultrasound. The lectures will include live demonstrations to show you how to obtain the necessary views, before you break out into practical sessions where you will practice scanning on normal individuals
In the practical sessions you will use a wide range of ultrasound equipment including portable and handheld devices.
