MSK Australia is a professional group of Radiologists and Sonographers with a passion for musculoskeletal imaging and sports medicine. Our goal is to provide high quality educational content in outstanding locations, within a relaxed intimate environment and at an affordable price.
The MSK Masterclass Series is a single day event bringing together local and national experts to share their knowledge on either the upper or lower limb.
The topic for this year’s Sydney event is the Lower Limb, where presenters will provide a clinically guided rationale to the sonographic imaging and assessment of these structures. The combination of lectures and didactic live scanning workshops will guide delegates on where and how to look, what to find and how to make the correct diagnosis.
Whether a beginner or advanced ultrasound clinician, you will develop new knowledge and skills to enhance your clinical practice.
QUALITY EDUCATION, OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE.
