Primary Care Vascular

The course is tailored to the most typical needs of GPs. However, other clinicians involved in primary care who are interested in ultrasound, including physiotherapists and nurses, will also find it useful.

Our Ultrasound for Primary Care course is suitable for beginners and those in the early stages of using ultrasound.

Topics covered include:

  • Ultrasound physics
  • Knobology (how to operate ultrasound machines)
  • Basic MSK Ultrasound (shoulder, ankle, knee pathologies, ultrasound-guided joint injections and aspirations)
  • Recognising cysts, tumours, and other point-of-care ‘lumps and bumps’
  • Renal ultrasound (urinary retention/blocked catheters, kidney stones)
  • Lung ultrasound for pleural effusion/consolidation
  • DVT (how to use venous ultrasound to diagnose deep vein thrombosis)
