Joint Injection Workshop (6 December 2023)

This workshop involves ultrasound-guided injections on phantom limbs.
We will also provide Sensor-guided models to practice landmark-guided injections.
This workshop is complimentary for Basic and intermediate levels.

Fundamental Level (7 & 8 December 2023): This course is for beginners in ultrasound practice or those with little experience in MSK ultrasound.

Intermediate Level (7 & 8 December 2023): For those who did at least 2 basic level courses, practice ultrasound regularly and would like to improve their skills to a higher level.

Monographic Upper Extremity (9 & 10 December 2023): This is a unique EULAR-endorsed course that runs exclusively in Qatar and is designed for advanced-level sonographers. This year, we plan to focus on learning in-depth scanning techniques for each major anatomic area in the upper limb and identify difficult musculoskeletal pathology in the upper limb. It also recognizes musculoskeletal ultrasound artifacts and pitfalls.

The highlight of this course is specialized training in small groups by internationally acclaimed trainers. It is guaranteed to give you deep knowledge and hands-on experience in the subject.

Cadaver-guided injection workshop: to enhance the practice of advanced-level participants in the monographic course, we are delighted to offer a cadaver-guided injection workshop of the upper extremity. This is a 3-hour workshop supervised by world figure instructors.

Ultrasound Guided Chronic Pain Workshop (9 December 2023): Comprehensive One-Day Ultrasound-Guided Chronic Pain Intervention Workshop

A number of procedures ranging from simple to advance in complexity will be covered. The workshop is optimized for maximum hands-on scanning time. You will learn from highly experienced faculty who will guide you through the sonoanatomy, indications, needling approaches, and safety aspects of each procedure.

Fundamental , intermediate and monographic levels are endorsed by EULAR, and European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB). Participants will also gain International CPD credits.
