Summer Offer

You will form a solid basis for your nerve ultrasound career. This course covers the most frequently requested bigger nerves, which you can assess easily and reliably when starting with this diagnostic tool.

Learning objectives

After completing the course you will be able to perform examinations of the most frequently requested nerves, i.e. the median, ulnar, radial, peroneal, tibial and sural nerves and diagnose the most frequently encountered pathologies with focus on compression syndromes, traumatic nerve lesions and inflammatory nerve disease. You will be able to discuss the advantages and limitations of ultrasound as well as complementary electrodiagnostic studies.

Teaching method

Online course with videos, audios and animated slides for active engagement.

CME certification

16 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM

Plus:

  • Your free workbook to print and take notes
  • Forum for discussing your questions with us
  • Print your certificate

Modules

Median nerve, ulnar nerve, radial nerve, peroneal nerve, tibial nerve and sural nerve.

Each module contains the following chapters:
Anatomy

A focused journey on the nerve´s course with emphasis on the topographic surroundings as well as motor and sensory innervation territories.

Clinical findings

Being able to securely assign symptoms to a specific nerve is a key skill for a nerve sonographer. Difficult? Not if you know what to look for and where to look for it. Done in 30 seconds.

Electrodiagnostics

The complementary examinations to nerve ultrasound. Inevitably you will be confronted with nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography (EMG). Understand the strengths and weaknesses in the examination of each nerve and use this knowledge to your advantage.

Ultrasound

Our star presented to you by one of our experts. Select the best point to start, get the landmarks and enjoy a demonstration of the whole course accessible. Then achieve perfection with our legendary nerve sliders.

Cases

You have mastered normal ultrasound anatomy? Perfect. Then you are ready to see the difference in the diseased nerve. We have prepared cases that present a broad variety of nerve pathologies.

Get insights into compression and inflammatory neuropathies, nerve tumors and nerve trauma as well as musculoskeletal differential diagnosis.

Among the topics:
Ulnar neuropathy at the elbow, Tarsal tunnel syndrome, peroneal neuropathy at the fibular head, grading of nerve trauma with ultrasound, the schwannoma, tenosynovitis

Two additional remarks
  1. This course does not cover the small branches like digital nerves or the distal course of the deep branch of the ulnar nerve, because according to our experience this would only make sense for the more experienced sonographer. The small branches will be topics of an advanced course.
  2. We are working interdisciplinary, teaching MDs with different specializations and intend to establish a solid level of knowledge in all interested colleagues. As a neurologist you will already be familiar with details of clinical examination while as a radiologist you will be familiar with topographic details. Be aware that part of the content might just be a reminder for you.
What you may expect

Investing five minutes of training into the symptoms of nerve damage and the most frequent syndromes of each nerve

What you may not expect

A detailed in-depth education in clinical and electrophysiologic issues equaling a neurologic specialization training

I could instantly apply my new knowledge in a patient with anterior interosseous syndrome.

I especially consider the video clips with the life ultrasound exam and split screen very clarifying. The spoken language in the courses is clear and easy to follow. Further, I enjoyed learning at my own pace.

I recommend the course because it is gives you theory and practice side by side.

Neurophysiology Technologist, The Netherlands

Before the course we used ultrasound only for compressive neuropathy – now we broadened our diagnostic spectrum far beyond that!  

The course is well structured and really brings you to the current state-of-the-art.  We enjoyed the interactive engagement, which makes it very easy to learn and the structured case presentations allow the transfer into daily practice.

Antje Seebers & colleagues
Neurophysiology Technologists, The Netherlands

I was extremely impressed by the thorough e-learning! Compliments and recommendation!

Marjolein Berrevoets-Aerts
Neurologist, The Netherlands

Many thanks to the authors, I have learned new things!

I have been using ultrasound for 5 years to diagnose peripheral nerve diseases. I have been in various hospitals in Europe for ultrasound training like this one and I participated in conferences on this topic many times. So I can honestly say that this work was done very well – professionally and educationally. I can recommend them to both beginners and advanced. 

Eduard Minks
Neurologist, Czech Republic

After taking the courses I am now confident to use ultrasound in my daily practice.

It is a well-designed, easy to understand course which approaches the problem completely by using anatomy, clinical examination, EMG an US to teach how to diagnose.

Frouke Nijhuis
Neurologist, The Netherlands

The courses are excellent! 

Patients and atypical cases, like the median nerve after surgery, are really interesting and useful! I really realized I had to improve my anatomic knowledge to become a pro.
