There is increasing interest in using ultrasound for assessment of complex voiding dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse and sling/ mesh complications. This workshop aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to utilize ultrasound imaging in assessment of complex pelvic floor problems.
The workshop covers principles of pelvic floor imaging, sonographic anatomy, applications of ultrasound in evaluation of male and female urinary incontinence, slings/mesh complications such as obstruction/ erosion and pelvic organ prolapse. Ultrasound modalities covered include transabdominal, transperineal and transvaginal scanning of the pelvic floor as well as 3D imaging techniques useful in the assessment of complex cases.
