AUGS FPMRS Webinar: How to Incorporate Pelvic Floor Ultrasound into your Practice (On-Demand)
Learning Objectives
This webinar is designed to show interested clinicians how to obtain optimal images of pelvic floor muscles, mesh, tapes, and anorectal disorders. Attendees will learn how to obtain useful pelvic floor images and interpret the clinical implications of alterations of the anatomy. Also, the speaker will introduce emerging techniques of “dynamic” pelvic floor ultrasound and three-dimensional ultrasound. Attendees also will observe some pre-recorded videos to optimize patient management and decision making.
Learning Objectives
  1. Understand various pelvic floor ultrasound instrumentation
  2. Understand how pelvic floor ultrasound can improve patient management and decision making
  3. Understand the difference between different ultrasound modalities
  4. Understand pelvic floor anatomy relevant to pelvic ultrasound and three-dimensional ultrasound
