Joints covered include knee, shoulder, elbow, hip and ankle.
Topics will include imaging technique, imaging theory, anatomy, technology, where and when to use ultrasound, training and governance and equipment advice.
The course uses a high ratio of teachers to delegates, ensuring attendees receive the most benefit from the practical sessions. It is suitable for those contemplating the use of Ultrasound within
their practice or existing users wanting to improve/extend the service currently offered.
