Musculoskeletal Ultrasound


  • Key features:

    • It is a five days introductory Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound course.
    • MSK ultrasound imaging is a fast growing non-invasive, inexpensive and readily available at “Point of Care” application within trauma and orthopedics surgery, sports medicine, physiotherapy and also in the field of rheumatology.
    • Basic or Introductory MSK Ultrasound courses are delivered with a main focus on the acquisition of basic practical skills on scanning techniques and protocols in examination of joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles with AIUM/ARDMS standard protocol.
    • One to One Hands-on training is the main focus on practical skills acquisition with practical and didactic classes with instructor-student ratios of 1:3.
    • State of the art training facility with modern ultrasound equipment with high resolution transducer for MSK, as well as with Color Doppler and 3D/4D facilities.
    • The utilization of real patient supplemented by videos, slides, lectures etc.
  • Target group:

    • Are you a Sonologist, Sports medicine physician or physio, looking to expand your ultrasound skills to the field of MSK Sonography?
    • Are you a Sonologist/Orthopedic/Trauma surgeon or Sports medicine specialist or a physiotherapist looking to enhance your ability to identify pathology of Joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles at “Point of Care”?
    • Do you simply want to improve your technique especially in MSK Sonography?
    • With MSK ultrasound, a fundamental component of your practice, this program will give you the practical and theoretical knowledge to perform and understand examination of muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves at your “point of care”.
