4th Copenhagen International 
Head & Neck Ultrasound Course


Head and Neck Ultrasound is increasingly used in office-based and surgical settings globally and participants from more than 25 different countries and 5 continents have participated in this international course. The course introduces head and neck ultrasound and ultrasound-guided intervention skills to specialists and registrars in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. 

This course is both for experienced practitioners who aim to improve their ultrasound skills and trainees interested in starting to perform ultrasound in their clinical practice. The course is also relevant to other specialities performing head and neck ultrasound as endocrinologists, paediatricians, radiologists, etc. 


An international multispeciality faculty will teach thyroid, parathyroid, and neck ultrasound, and the lectures will be combined with quizzes to improve interactivity and learning. About half of the time is planned for hands-on training on volunteer patients or phantoms for ultrasound-guided interventions (including fine-needle aspiration biopsies, core needle biopsies, and radiofrequency ablation). This course is endorsed by The European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) and corresponds to the theoretical part of the EFSUMB Level 1 curriculum. It is a non-profit course, and a possible surplus will be used to develop surgeon-performed ultrasound in resource-limited countries in collaboration with the African Head and Neck Society (AfHNS). Please read more about the global outreach project.

We hope to see you in wonderfull Copenhagen from 20-21th June 2024!
