Idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome

Online Nerve Ultrasound Course

Your perfect first step into the world of nerve ultrasound. Get to know the most frequent compression neuropathy and the creators of the courses.

Learn how to diagnose CTS with ultrasound, get tips, learn tricks and establish the relation between clinical symptoms and electrodiagnostic findings.

Summer Offer
Learning objectives

After completion of the course you are able to scan the median nerve in the area relevant for diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome – from middle forearm to the palm of the hand. You can diagnose an idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome by means of ultrasound, nerve conduction studies and clinical symptoms.

Teaching method

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

Chapters

Anatomy

The median nerve and its topography from distal forearm to the final branches.

Clinical findings

Symptoms that fit the diagnosis of a carpal tunnel syndrome and symptoms that do not. Are you aware that clinical diagnosis is the gold standard for compression neuropathies? Therefore it is relevant to know them well.

Electrodiagnostics

Often the first instrumental diagnostic procedure applied and as it seems presenting with slightly better test characteristics. Get to know the principles behind the changes found in nerve conduction studies of patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and read reports brought to you with this background knowledge.

Ultrasound

After a short introduction into choice of probe and image optimization we are ready to explore the distal course of the median nerve including its small branches. Get tips and tricks for scanning and diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome.

Cases

Five cases prepared for you that cover the diagnostic constellations you can be confronted with. Get involved based on the knowledge you acquired in the previous chapters and understand how to reach the diagnosis in real life.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
