1st APLAR Endorsed Course of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Workshop – Basic Level

Two day workshop

Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a rapidly growing field in rheumatology and has become an increasingly important tool for assessing various musculoskeletal disorders. Compared to other imaging modalities such as X-rays, CT scans and MRI, musculoskeletal ultrasound has several advantages, including its non-invasiveness, cost-effectiveness, and the ability to perform dynamic assessments in real-time. 

This course focuses on a basic sonoanatomy and standard scanning of peripheral joints.  With the help of this course, you will learn about the sonoanatomy of the musculoskeletal system, and how to use ultrasound to diagnose and monitor joint diseases. The participants will also learn about the practical aspects of performing musculoskeletal ultrasound, including patient positioning, probe selection, and interpretation of images along with the assessment to help participants learn better.
