The morning focusses on scanning the shoulder in small groups, with high-specification machines and close supervision from our expert faculty. The format is short presentations, faculty demonstrations and practical workshops where the delegates scan each other, with close supervision/guidance. 

There is a strong clinical focus throughout, and particular attention is given to when and how imaging findings change clinical management. Many case examples are presented, and discussion is encouraged to share ideas and experiences. Clinicians attend our courses from a variety of disciplines, providing an excellent opportunity to network, learn from each other and challenge clinical practice.

The afternoon focusses on ultrasound guided injections of the shoulder. The course will cover sub-acromial bursa, acromioclavicular, LH biceps sheath, glenohumeral joint, and suprascapular nerve injections. More advanced procedures including barbotage and lavage and hydrodistention are also included. 

Delegates will be taught how to carry out an in-plane and out-of-plane guided injection and will have the opportunity to practise this on meat specimens. Our tutors have taught this course all over the world and have lots of top tips, technical knowledge and clinical gems to ensure delegates maximise their learning experience.
