WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Hand, fingers en thumb anatomy
  • Hand, fingers en thumb sonoanatomy
  • Transducer positions to scan static tissues
  • Scanning dynamical hand, fingers and thumb movements
  • Pathology recognition of several hand pathologies

Content

The aim of this 3-part course is deepening the ultrasound examination of the hand, fingers and thumb. We will discuss (sono)anatomy, transducer positions and sonopathology positions on an intermediate level with adding more in-depth information and new positions to your foundational level knowledge and skills. We will review the theory and practice ultrasound skills of several important osseous, cartilaginous, capsuloligamentous, myogenic, neurogenic, and vascular structures. We will also share with you some interesting literature which you can study after the webinar to deepen your knowledge.

Certificate

After completion of the full webinar you'll receive a digital Certificate of Attendance.
