Course Aims

Using an intensive, friendly and practical learning environment, you will:

  • Using an intensive, friendly and practical learning environment, you will:
  • Develop knowledge and skills required to perform a basic and competent, protocol driven, sonographic assessment of the joints of the lower limb;
  • Be able to integrate sonographic findings into your clinical consultation using an evidence based approach;
  • Develop an understanding of the principles of US guided MSK injections, and be familiar with commonly performed US guided injection techniques;
  • Network with tutors and peers, and enhance learning through informal discussion.

Who is this course for?

This two day program is designed for any health professional with an interest in musculoskeletal ultrasound.

Pre-requisites

A basic understanding of the principles of MSK sonography and scanning technique is assumed. For those students new to sonography, a pre-course Zoom session covering some basics is provided, and included as part of the course fee.

It is assumed the student will have a good understanding of normal and abnormal anatomy, and of common pathological conditions affecting the MSK system.

Course Content

  • US assessment of the normal hip, hamstrings, knee, ankle and foot
  • US assessment of selected, commonly seen pathology in the hip, knee, ankle and foot
  • Interpretation of sonographic findings, including validity of US in diagnosis of certain conditions affecting the LL
  • Pathology relevant to sonography in commonly seen conditions affecting the LL
  • Common US guided LL injections

What we don’t cover

The focus of the course is sonographic assessment of the lower limb. While we will briefly discuss different types of injections and injection techniques, we do not cover various injection types (such as PRP) and techniques in depth. There will be plenty of opportunity for informal discussion during the course.

We do not cover certain more advanced areas of MSK sonography that are unlikely to be encountered regularly in day-to-day clinical practise.
