Webinar: Advanced MSK Ultrasound of the Ankle Joint

This comprehensive 3-part series on ankle ultrasound will deepen your ultrasound knowledge of the ankle region. Each session, we will refresh and update your (sono)anatomy skills and discuss interesting ankle pathology cases.

Objectifs pédagogiques

  • Peritalar anatomy of structures involved in ankle pain
  • ultrasound staging tendinopathy & report writing
  • Transducer positions for dynamic evaluation of posterior ankle impingement
  • Scanning techniques for ligamentous structures involved in ankle impingement
  • Pathology recognition of several ankle pathologies in and around the ankle
  • Prognosis and research in ankle complaints

Schedule & Topics

Part 1: Posterior ankle impingement
Posterior ankle impingement; what are the causes, and what is the treatment
Ultrasound Cases; osseous, ligamental and myelogenous impingement

Part 2: Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome; how pathophysiology helps your clinical reasoning
The role of the Spring Ligament Complex, and os sustentaculum tali variations

Part 3: Tendinopathy
Tendinopathy; what does a normal tendon look like? What ultrasound findings truly have a clinical impact? And how to treat the tendon?
Staging tendinopathy, new protocol.

Content

The aim of this 3-part course is to deepen the ultrasound examination of the ankle. 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 exciting literature which you can study after the webinar to deepen your knowledge. All content is on an intermediate level.

Certificate

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