Foot & Ankle Masterclass - US and Cadaveric USG Injections



Buy Now

This unique 2 day comprehensive foot and ankle course has been specifically developed for podiatrists, physiotherapists and foot and ankle surgeons. The first day covers the scanning techniques of the foot and ankle and the second day focusses on ultrasound guided injections in the cadaveric laboratory.

The injection workshops are carried out on soft-preserved full body cadavers, which is the closest match to the real thing! You have full access to perfect your skills on the cadavers. We have lots of machines and you will benefit from close supervision throughout from our expert faculty.

This course is suitable for clinicians looking to start ultrasound and ultrasound guided procedures or for clinicians looking to refine and expand their scanning and ultrasound guided injection skill. Our tutors have lots of top tips to ensure you get the most out of the course.

Who should attend?
This programme attracts podiatrists, foot and ankle consultants and physiotherapists, sports medicine doctors, GP’s, rheumatologists, radiologists and sonographers looking to expand their skills around the foot and ankle.

Course pre-requisites
The course is designed for clinicians just starting out with ultrasound and ultrasound-guided procedures to those clinicians looking to develop and refine their skills.
