Sports Medicine Ultrasound Group (SMUG) - Raising the Standards of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Friday 31st May 2019

Venue Wrightington Hospital

The course focuses on scanning the shoulder and elbow (wrist can be covered on request) 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. After this, delegates get the opportunity to scan real patients with a variety of pathology.

There is a strong clinical focus throughout and particular attention is given 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.

The afternoon focusses on ultrasound guided injections. Delegates will be taught how to carry out an in-plane and out-of-plane guided injections and will have the opportunity to practise this on meat specimens (chicken breasts and pigs trotters). Our tutors have taught this course all over the world and have lots of top tips, technical knowledge and clinical gems to ensure delegates maximise this unique learning opportunity and develop their skills. For each injection the delegates are taught the simplest and most effective techniques.

This course is suitable for clinicians with no ultrasound imaging experience or those looking to develop their skills further.
