Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training

The use of musculoskeletal ultrasound is booming in Europe.
Ultrasound is noninvasive, painless and without side effects for the patient.
Its use allows the medical and paramedical practitioner to direct their diagnoses and treatment accurately, objectively and effectively.

Unique in Belgium

This unique training in Belgium is based on the Guidelines of the European Society of Radiology  and it is the only training course open to non-medical clinicians.

Who will benefit from these courses?

Sports Physicians, General Practitioners, Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, and all other medical specialties of the musculoskeletal system.

Practice

Ultrasound scanning uses dynamic imaging in real time: the images on the screen, the probe, the patient and the examiner are in constant motion.

Therefore, it is essential to complete hands on training and not just theoretical learning.

Advantages

In addition to allowing the visualisation of anatomical structures such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves and blood vessels, it is also possible to assess their condition and function.

It is indisputable that ultrasound has a perfect place in the panel of tools to support patient care.

Different Course Proposals

Option 1:

Musculoskeletal ultrasound introduction

This introductory course is designed for the professional interested in ultrasound, and who wishes to follow a comprehensive basic course in the future.

This is an ideal course for researchers, final year students or recent graduates. This course will provide specific answers to the questions about the potential use and benefits of ultrasound, and its clinical research base and future contribution in the profession.

It is important to understand that the introductory course does not replace a full basic course.

Indeed, more hours on the comprehensive basic course will be required to be able to scan effectively and analyse images accurately and qualitatively in your own clinical practice.
