The ESSR Ultrasound Workshop offers excellence in Ultrasound education by highly skilled and reputed Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK US) Radiologists.

Based on this year’s topic “Sports and Tumors” the one-day study, initially designed for ESSR 2020 in Stockholm, goes virtual on Saturday, September 26th 2020.

The program is divided into three main sections:

First, “Anatomy Demos”: video demonstrations of MSK US experts performing the examination, offering tips and tricks on the examination protocol while the US scan produced is presented simultaneously.

Second, “Video Demos”: demonstrations of US scans on important MSK Pathologies and Interventional Procedures.

Third, “Rapid Fire”: lectures focusing on pearls of US pathology in Sports Injuries and Soft-Tissue Tumors Diagnosis and Treatment.
