Nerve- and Muscle Ultrasound Teaching Course

We welcome all medical professionals interested in nerve ultrasound to participate at this course. You will find a valued exchange with ultrasound experts from different fields such as neurology, anesthesiology, radiology, rheumatology, neuro- and hand surgery. Emphasis is set on practical teaching lessons with hands-on workshops examining normal anatomy on models and pathological findings on invited patients.

In order to keep it as much instructive and interactive as possible, on-site places are restricted. As a novum, we outsourced the live streaming of the whole teaching course to the professional video and live streaming company yoveo, which makes the on-line participation also a very attractive option. There, we will again offer several interactive "ask the experts" sessions for the on-line participants during the on-site hands-on sessions.
