ultrasound is increasingly used in rheumatology for diagnostic and monitoring purposes: It is valuable to detect subclinical inflammation in arthritis and may support the exclusion of active inflammation in patients with chronic joint pain. Sonography may also be useful in patients with suspected large vessel arteritis, Sjögren’s syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome and several other rheumatic conditions.
In this advanced level EUROSON School course we will present the state of the art of ultrasound findings in inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions, connective tissue diseases and vasculitis. In addition, we will teach the application of sonography for the investigation of nerves, trauma and tumours. This course is composed of clinical lectures, live demonstrations and hands-onsessions 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 professionals interested to learn the applications of sonography in rheumatology to this EUROSON School course.
We hope to welcome you in November 2018 in Graz, Austria
Christian Dejaco and Rusmir Husic
