This course will cover the anatomy, scanning approaches and pathologies of upper limb (shoulder, arm, elbow and forearm), lower limb (hips, thigh, knee, calf, ankle and foot), and abdominal wall. The location, echopattern, vascularity and artefacts of the bone, tendon, ligament, bursa, muscle, nerve and adipose tissues will be discussed. Special attention will be given to obtain the standard imaging planes to identify the various structures in the upper and lower limbs and abdominal wall. Case-based tutorials will be conducted to enhance students' ability to critically analyse various sonograhic features and their relationship with different pathologies.
