Webinar: Practice and principles of ultrasound case-based clinical reasoning

During this three-part webinar, you will gain more insight into what clinical reasoning is and what you need to take into account during the diagnostic process (the theoretical framework). The theoretical framework is discussed on the basis of case discussions, in which ultrasound will be the imaging diagnostic modality. The three parts will be characterized by a recurring character of the theory. Different case histories are used (shoulder, knee and ankle).

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Diagnostic strategies
  • Cognitive bias
  • Diagnostic tests (accuracy, pre- and post-test probabilities, diagnostic gain, observer variability)
  • Efficacy of diagnostic testing
  • Applying this theory during case discussions

Schedule & Topics

Part 1: January 11th - 7:00-8:30 PM: Shoulder & principles of clinical reasoning
Theory: Diagnostic strategies, cognitive bias, diagnostic tests (accuracy, pre- and post-test probabilities, diagnostic gain, observer variability), efficacy of diagnostic testing.
Case discussion about shoulder pain with focus on calcific tendinopathy in which the theory will be applied.

Part 2: January 18th - 7:00-8:30 PM: Shoulder & clinical reasoning
Brief rehearsal of the theory discusses in part 1.
Case discussions: clinical reasoning with ultrasound features and management of frozen shoulder and humeral head fractures.

Part 3: January 25th - 7:00-8:30 PM: Knee and Ankle & clinical reasoning
Brief rehearsal of the theory discusses in part 1.
Case discussions: clinical reasoning with ultrasound features and management of anterior cruciate ligament injury, meniscal injury, osteoarthritis, and ankle ligament injury.

Content

The aim of this 3-part webinar is introducing and deepening the term clinical reasoning in the field of ultrasound imaging. We will discuss the theoretical framework of clinical reasoning and apply this on several shoulder, knee and ankle cases. In this way theory and practice will be integrated. We will discuss not only the most common clinical indications for ultrasound imaging, but also show that ultrasound imaging can be used for different traumatic ligamentous injuries and fractures. Thinking out-of-the-box will be encouraged. We will also share with you some interesting literature which you can study after the webinar to deepen your knowledge. All content is on an foundational and partly intermediate level.
