This 2-day course is designed for practitioners with experience in MSK Ultrasound that want to challenge and develop their skills further. This course will take your probe skills and knowledge to the next level. The course is taught by dual-trained physiotherapists/MSK sonographers and sports medicine consultants with over 40 years of scanning experience between them. There is a strong clinical focus throughout and particular attention is made to when, and how, imaging findings change clinical management. Many case examples are presented and discussion is encouraged to share ideas and experiences. Our courses are attended by a range of clinicians, providing an excellent forum to network and learn from each other.

This course is split into Lower Limb on  Day 1 and Upper Limb on Day 2.

Over the two days, we cover most parts of the body, with a particular focus on scanning challenging structures such as the distal biceps, rotator cuff interval and cable in the upper limb, as well as the proximal hamstring, lateral hip and most common muscles and peripheral nerves in the lower limb. Delegates are sent pre-course material to review to help prepare for the course and maximise their learning experience.

Short presentations provide an overview of ultrasound in acute and chronic sports injuries, the relationship with other imaging and the clinical management implications. The majority of the course takes place in small tutorial groups with constant feedback from one of our expert tutors. Numbers on the course are kept low to ensure delegates are closely supervised and are challenged to develop their skills. Our experience shows that teaching in this format is the best way to ensure that delegates can directly translate what they have learnt and apply these skills and techniques in their own clinical setting. Tutorial groups are adjusted to the level of experience, skills and clinical interests of the delegates. At the end of the course, feedback is given on progress, skill level and areas for further development.

The future of ultrasound imaging will be discussed with reference to technical advances such as the development of high resolution multifrequency linear transducers, 3-dimensional imaging, MRI/US fusion and elastography.
