Day 1 focuses on scanning the shoulder, elbow and wrist in small groups, with plenty of machines and close supervision from our expert faculty. The morning includes short presentations, faculty demonstrations and practical workshops where the delegates scan with close supervision on models. In the afternoon delegates will scan real patients with a variety of pathology.
There is a strong clinical focus throughout and particular attention is made 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 forum to network, learn from each other and challenge clinical practice.
Day 1 is suitable for delegates with no ultrasound experience or practitioners who are looking to develop their skills further.
Day 1 Fee: £330 (no limitation on numbers)
Day 2 gives delegates the opportunity to learn ultrasound-guided injections of the upper limb on cadavers. Day 2 is strictly limited to 18 delegates to ensure one cadaver and one ultrasound machine to 2 delegates. This will ensure the delegates get the most out of the day, have ample time to practice under close supervision and get the opportunity to carry out as many injections as possible.
Our tutors have taught this course all over the world and have all the top tips; technical knowledge and clinical gems to ensure the delegates maximise this unique learning opportunity and develop their guided injection skills. For each injection the delegates are taught the simplest and most effective techniques. The practical workshops are carried out on freshly frozen cadavers, which is the closest match to the real thing! You have full access to perfect your skills on the cadavers over the whole day. Day 2 is suitable for delegates with no guided injection experience or for those who are already carrying out injections but want to develop their skills and injection repertoire.
We cover the basic procedures including all peri-articular and articular injections and more advanced procedures such as barbotage for calcification and hydro-distention for adhesive capsulitis. Following this course you will be ready to either start carrying out guided injections on your clients or ready to introduce the more advanced techniques into your repertoire.
Day 2 Fee: £595 (limited to 18 delegates as the day takes place in the Bioskills Lab)
