This course has a particular emphasis on accurate and detailed anatomy to enable you to become adept in the safe and correct attainment of ultrasound images.
These images will enhance your examination of sporting and musculoskeletal pathologies.
The PG Certificate comprises two 30-credit core modules. There are no optional modules.
This first module involves the background scientific principles and instrumentation of ultrasound. You will also look at the practical application of this knowledge within the context of the normal anatomy of the upper and lower limbs of healthy adults.
You will study musculoskeletal anatomy and pathology, and develop your skill in interpreting common pathologies within a musculoskeletal context. The first module can be taken as a stand-alone module.
The second module is practice-based and can be started once the first module has been completed successfully.
This second module also includes a two-day block of lectures and practical scanning which includes the use of cadaveric specimens to enhance anatomical knowledge.
