Aims and Objectives
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.
- Acquire knowledge of the principles of ultrasound imaging of the pelvis and utilize ultrasound as the imaging modality in assessment of voiding dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, sling and mesh complications
- Recognize pelvic organs on ultrasound and identify common sonographic findings in voiding dysfunction (including stress urinary incontinence, voiding dysfunction post sling and mesh repairs, and pelvic organ prolapse)
- Understand the principles and role of 3D ultrasound in the assessment of complex pelvic floor dysfunction and mesh complications
