Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Overview

After completion of this course, you are capable of using Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound in clinical practice in a qualitative and critical way. You will learn how to scan anatomical structures of the upper- and lower extremity. The core of this hands-on skills course is based on an intensive review of anatomy of specific regions, pathophysiology of common conditions within these regions and evidence-based reviews of the use of MSK ultrasound in the assessment of the locomotoric system.

Learning objectives

  • Understanding the concept of ultrasound
  • Observing the appearance of anatomical tissues in ultrasound
  • Learning how to use the ultrasound system
  • Understanding the 3D functional anatomy of all extremity joints
  • Being able to scan all ESSR extremity joint protocols in a correct and reliable way
  • Correctly working with the toolcards for qualitative scanning and pathology recognition

The total study load for the entire Level 1 Foundations of MSK ultrasound course is approx. 110 hours (incl. preparation work, following the course and homework) over 4 days and is divided into part 1 Upper Extremity and part 2 Lower Extremity (2 days each).

e-Learning

Over 150 videos, totaling to over 16 hours of content are on-demand available to you before, during and after the course. All SonoSkills courses are blended, meaning a combination of online and onsite learning. Blended learning is an additional element to classroom teaching and one which supports existing teaching practices. It combines many of the best elements of face-to-face teaching (personalized learning and social interaction) while allowing greater variety and flexibility than a traditional classroom set up, responding to the needs of the modern learner.

Eligibility

Physical therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, and physicians interested in improving their diagnostic capabilities and insights in treating dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system.

Accreditation

Local DHA/HAAD accreditations as approved.
