    International School of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

    High-resolution Ultrasound of theExtremities - III. Shoulder and hip23-25 September 2014 - Genoa, ItalyOptional preceptorship session: 25-27 September 2014

  • Aim High-resolution ultrasound is an extremely useful and versatiletechnique for examining the musculoskeletal system. It has theadvantage of being readily available and inexpensive, at the same timeproviding highly detailed information regarding a variety of clinicallyrelevant structures of the musculoskeletal system including tendons,muscles, nerves, ligaments, joints and bone. As technology progresses,it is becoming increasingly clear where ultrasound would be the primaryconsideration and this technique is increasingly viewed as one thatcompetes with MR imaging rather than as a complementary tool. TheInternational School of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound will offer a greatopportunity to improve theoretical background together with practicalskills to perform an appropriate ultrasound examination of themusculoskeletal system. This live educational course will be focused onshoulder and neck, and hip and pelvis. The scientific programme will runfor one full day and two half-days. It will consist of lectures with livedemonstrations, case studies, interactive sessions and hands-onscanning in small groups with experienced tutors. There will also be anoptional Preceptorship session, working closely with the Professor,practicing scanning techniques and observing consultations withpatients.

    Learning objectivesAt the end of this live educational course learners will be able to:

    To describe normal anatomy, variants and biomechanics ofmusculoskeletal structures and recognize related pathology

    To explain how to apply the advanced US in the distal lower extremity

    To improve their practice in their own examination skills underexpert guidance, taking advantages from practical training sessions

    Target audienceMusculoskeletal radiologists, rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons,physiatrists, neurophysiologists and any other specialist interested inmusculoskeletal ultrasound
