The Course: February 29th – March 1st 2016

Manchester Neck Ultrasound Course Hosted By The Manchester Head & Neck Centre

Monday 29th February & Tuesday 1st March 2016 

Course Aims:

This course aims to teach neck ultrasonography and u/s guided FNAC to ENT/Head and Neck Surgeons, radiologists and sonographers. It was first held successfully in February 2016. The emphasis is on hands-on workshops with close supervision by the faculty (1 machine per 2-3 delegates). This is supported by lectures and live demonstrations. By the end of the course, delegates should have a good grounding in neck ultrasonography and be able to perform systematic and thorough examination of the thyroid, salivary glands and all areas of the neck, as well as u/s-FNAC. These techniques are put into clinical context and the delegates should understand exactly how the ultrasound imaging and interpretation, as well as FNAC when appropriate, fit into clinical decision making.

The Manchester Head & Neck Centre are ENT-UK approved and have been credited with 12 CPD Points. Following the success of this course, we are also BMUS approved having been rewarded with 10 CPD points.
