1st International workshop for Nerve sonography

Interactive workshop with hands-on teaching

Participants learn:

  • how to find and assess peripheral nerves – the big and the small ones no matter where they are located in the body basing on our “landmarking technique”
  • the clinical impact of nerve sonography as a first line diagnostic and imaging tool for peripheral nerve pathology: “find it to fix it”!
  • about the role of high resolution nerve sonography in the diagnostic algorithm even for special peripheral nerve pathologies as e.g. polyneuropathies, inflammatory neuropathies, peripheral nerve trauma and mass assessment.
  • about options for interventional high resolution nerve sonography in pain therapy.
    by hands-on workshops under individual tutorials how peripheral nerve sonography works: “try it out”!

 

Target Groups
Doctors-in-Training and Specialists of any medical field with interest in peripheral nerve imaging and high resolution peripheral nerve sonography.
