MSK ultrasound webinars series
The MSK ultrasound webinars series is something that started in March 2020 in response to the Covid-19 global pandemic. It is actually a concept that we had been considering starting at The Ultrasound Site for some time prior to that. The aim is to provide a deeper evaluation and discussion on topics related to MSK Ultrasound, something that is not easy to put across in written blogs. We really hope this will be of value to all our colleagues out there outside the UK as well.
We have started with how to begin the journey, then considering what you can see and then moving onto more broader discussions of governance and different clinical environments. We hope there is something of value here for all MSK ultrasound users in our community.
Have a look through the selection below

Episode 1: How to start your journey in MSK Ultrasound
We discuss the benefits and challenges of MSK ultrasound and how to get started with training. We touch on the confusion around training, the varied routes and development of competency. This is a MUST LISTEN for those new to this skill and wanting to understand more.
Episode 2: What can we see on MSK Ultrasound?
We run through a series of slides covering some of the key musculoskeletal structures that you can see on MSK ultrasound such as tendon, muscle, ligament, nerve and bone.
Episode 3: Choosing an ultrasound system…price,probes and purchasing!
A key part of taking on this skill is purchasing a system – What do you need? What are the costs and considerations? We are joined by Douglas Ogg from Orca Medical to pick through his experiences and ours as clinicians working in the NHS and private practice.
Episode 4: Clinical governance of MSK Ultrasound
We discuss all aspects of clinical governance. The key part of clinical practice that ensures patient safety and maintains standards. Infection control, policies, unexpected findings and more.
Episode 5: Musculoskeletal ultrasound in POCUS and Radiology..a discussion
The two key clinical domains of MSK ultrasound and sometimes there are tensions between them. We work in both, so provide insights into the benefits and risks of point of care use, and the same for Radiology use.
