Course content

In the last decade, the use of ultrasound in pelvic health has rapidly grown. This imaging modality is especially useful in the field of pelvic-perineal rehabilitation since it allows us to visualize the involved structures and study them from a morphological and functional perspective. This course aims to provide participants with ultrasound techniques for evaluating and treating certain perineal dysfunctions. Sonographic image in pelviperineology gives us objective information about muscle function, pelvic stability, prolapses, perineal injuries and many other conditions. The course also integrates the evaluation of other structures in the abdominopelvic sphere which play an important role in the management of perineal pathology, namely, the abdominal wall and the diaphragm.

Target Audience

This course is designed for (pelvic) healthcare professionals who are new to ultrasound and would like to start using this medical imaging modality in their clinical practice.
