Following the great success of the basic course last year, we are glad to announce the next course of our series, which is an intermediate level ultrasound course. This course will introduce you into the main ultrasound pathologies in the field of rheumatology. Physicians and health care professionals with an interest in musculoskeletal sonography are going to learn the ultrasound characteristicsof arthritis, tenosynovitis and enthesitis in patients with rheumatic diseases. Besides, specific findings in crystal arthropathies as well as structural changes in inflammatory and degenerative joint diseases will be discussed. We will also introduce you into the ultrasound guided infiltration technique.
As all of our courses, this course will be composed of clinical lectures, live demonstrations and hands on sessions in small groups. All speakers and tutors are experienced sonographers and certified EULAR teachers. The majority of speakers are also EFSUMB level 3 sonographers.
We invite all physicians and health care profession als with an interest in sonography in rheumatology to this EUROSON School course, intermediate level in Graz.
We hope to welcome you in October 2017 in Graz, Austria
