ESSR Virtual Ultrasound Workshop

Main Topic – Sports and Tumour
Course Director – Dr. Athena Plagou, Athens/GR

Dear ESSR members, colleagues and friends,

ESSR Ultrasound Workshop has been traditionally organized during the ESSR Annual Meeting attracting numerous delegates both Radiologists and non-Radiologists, Radiographers and students. It offers excellence in Ultrasound Education by skilled and reputed Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK US) experts.

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 All you need in order to be part of this virtual experience is an electronic device and internet connection.

As originally planned, the program is divided in three main sections:

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

Secondly, “Video Demos”: demonstrations of the US scans on important MSK pathologies and interventional procedures.

Last, “Rapid Fire Lectures” focusing on pearls of US pathology in sports injuries and soft-tissue tumors diagnosis and treatment.

This virtual workshop can serve as wonderful educational tool in everyday clinical practice. Although hands-on sessions cannot be offered virtually, distinguished US experts will share their expertise both by virtual lectures and by answering questions during five Q&A sessions.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the provisional program of this one-day study on MSK Ultrasound with the participation of distinguished international faculty. I encourage everyone who is interested in MSK Ultrasound either at a beginner or advanced level to take advantage of this opportunity; attend and interact during this virtual event on Saturday, September 26th.

Yours sincerely,

Athena Plagou

ESSR Ultrasound Subcommittee Chairperson
