Full course description

The course is a mixture of lectures, case studies, demonstrations and practical workshops. The practical workshops take place in small groups with close supervision from our expert tutors. 

 

Over the two days, short lectures cover basic physics, artefacts, knobology, image optimisation, quality assurance, medico-legal and clinical governance issues. A significant part of the course is practical workshops with ample time for delegates to scan under close supervision. We cover the knee, shoulder and ankle joints in detail. This includes the ligaments, nerves, surrounding musculature and tendons for each body part. On day 2 (when possible) there is an opportunity for delegates to discuss the scan results and appropriate management.
