10th Cardiff Cadaveric Ultrasound-guided Musculoskeletal Intervention Course (MSK Course)

14th and 15th February 2020

Welsh Centre for Anatomical Education, University of Cardiff

About

This unique two-day ‘hands-on’ musculoskeletal (MSK) intervention course will provide the participant to perform Ultrasound-guided musculoskeletal interventional procedures on unembalmed freeze-preserved cadavers under direct supervision by Consultant Musculoskeletal Interventional Radiologists. This Cardiff Cadaveric Ultrasound-guided Musculoskeletal Intervention Course is popularly known by the acronym CCUMIC.

With a high tutor-to-participant ratio, this practical course will be delivered in small groups using a series of tutor demonstrations where participants undertake various interventional procedures on cadavers, simulating clinical practice.

Practical sessions will include injection of joints and surrounding soft tissue structures, and techniques such as dry needling and biopsies. The indications and contraindications for musculoskeletal interventions, and the role of pertinent drugs including potential complications will also be discussed. A workshop at the end of the course will give the participants an opportunity to consolidate on their particular area of interest.

The teachers were fantastic, very knowledgeable and very approachable for asking questions. We were able to make the absolute most of the time we had with practical injecting. It was good there were only a couple of lectures, it was pitched just right for me.

Excellent. Rarely would you have such an opportunity to work under close guidance and on quality fresh cadavers. The balance was heavily towards practical application, which is exactly what was needed. A great course which brought together my injection therapy and ultrasound skills. A very enjoyable experience.
