MSK Ultrasound: Abdominal and Chest Walls

Course description

Expiry date: June 1, 2023

Master the theoretical and practical aspects of abdominal and chest walls ultrasound with the guidance of Dr. Jean Louis Brasseur!

While the thoracic and abdominal walls are the site of many lesions in athletes, other patients also present pain of parietal origin, the diagnosis of which is rarely accurate. Hernial and muscular lesions are frequent indications, as are costal and sternal lesions and the conflicts that these structures generate. Their superficial topography makes ultrasound extremely efficient for these diagnoses, especially since the dynamic specificity of the technique is essential for the assessment of hernias.
