Course Description

ASMI’s small group two-day intensive workshop designed is specifically for Sports, Rehabilitation and Pain Physicians and other clinicians who perform diagnostic MSK ultrasound investigations and associated MSK ultrasound guided interventions. The emphasis is on developing practical diagnostic scanning techniques, navigation skills and an understanding of normal and pathological sonographic patterns and appearances. The application of these diagnostic findings will achieve a wide range of safe, accurate and effective MSK ultrasound guided intervention outcomes.

The small group structure ensures a collaborative and supportive learning environment utilising a mixture of didactic lecture tuition and real-time scanning techniques. High quality equipment is used in conjunction with scanning models, ensuring the consolidation of practical scanning skills.
