This course will run in parallel with the ATCN training day before the Spring scientific meeting and will consist of a morning of theory and and afternoon of small group practical experience with normal volunteers and patients with peripheral nerve problems.
The teaching faculty will be:
Dr M E Hanson - University of Kent/East Kent Hospitals
Dr Roy Beekman - Heerlen, Netherlands
Dr Bhavna Batohi - King's College Hospital, London
Dr Jeremy Bland - East Kent Hospitals
Dr Partha Ray - Liverpool
The morning session will cover
Ultrasound imaging theory, safety, maintenance and artefacts
The basics of general musculoskeltal imaging
Specific imaging findings in focal and generalised neuropathies
Brief coverage of muscle imaging in denervation and myopathy
Morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch will be provided. Space is very limited as we are aiming for 12 delegate places with three groups of 4 for the practical session in the afternoon so that everyone should get time to practice scanning.
