The aim is to learn how to perform and interpret integrated total pelvic floor ultrasound (transperineal, transvaginal, endovaginal) as part of your assessment of pelvic floor dysfunction. This tool is used in clinic to detect anatomical (rectocoele, enterocoele, intussusception, cystocoele, bladder neck descent, uterine descent) and functional (dyssynergy, poor propulsive effort) abnormalities. You will know how to perform integrated total pelvic floor ultrasound and understand normal and pathological findings. This hands-on workshop allows you to practice image interpretation so that you can begin to use ultrasound in your clinical practice.
