Webinar: Ultrasound in Women’s & Men’s Health
This comprehensive 3-part webinar aims to provide participants with ultrasound techniques for both evaluation and treatment of multiple perineal dysfunctions: urinary incontinence, urgency, dysuria, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapses or diastasis recti. It includes advanced knowledge about abdominal and pelvic floor muscle function and morphology; as well as the reliability, validity and clinical relevance of different ultrasound techniques.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
- Transducer positions to scan the pelvic floor
- Scanning and understanding pelvic floor muscle function
- Measurement of most relevant landmarks
- Sonographic assessment of the abdominal wall function
- Utilization of ultrasound as a biofeedback tool for the management of pelvic floor disorders
SCHEDULE & TOPICS
Part 1: Tuesday January 12th (7:00 – 8:30 PM CET) – Transabdominal ultrasound of the pelvic floor
Pelvic floor anatomy and function, evaluation of the paravaginal tissue, pelvic floor muscles contraction quantification (mode B and M), bladder volume and post-void residual volume, US as a biofeedback tool.
Part 2: Tuesday January 19th (7:00 – 8:30 PM CET) – Transperineal ultrasound
Pelvic floor anatomy and function, pelvic floor muscles contraction quantification, urethral mobility quantification, posterior urethrovesical and anorectal angle assessment, pelvic organ prolapse assessment, anal sphincter evaluation, US as a biofeedback tool.
Part 3: Tuesday January 26th (7:00 – 8:30 PM CET) – Abdominal wall assessment in abdominal and pelvic floor disorders
Abdominal function and pelvic floor disorders, sonographic assessment of abdominal muscles: morphology and function (validity, reliability and clinical relevance), relevant landmarks, diastasis recti management and sonographic assessment (inter-recti distance, distortion index and functional evaluation), US as a biofeedback tool.
