3rd Copenhagen International 
Head & Neck Ultrasound Course

2560_202009022213235770010_edited.jpg

This course introduces head and neck ultrasound and ultrasound-guided intervention skills to specialists and registrars in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Surgeon-performed ultrasound is increasingly used in office-based and surgical settings to improve the diagnostic work-up and surgical results. Further, minimally invasive treatments, e.g. radiofrequency ablation

and ethanol injections for thyroid pathology, require sufficient ultrasound skills. 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 with a teacher-to-participant ratio of 1:3. Further, the participants will also practice ultrasound-guided interventions (including fine-needle aspiration biopsies, core needle biopsies, and radiofrequency ablation) on specially-made fantoms at the Panum Institute, Faculty of Health Science, Copenhagen University. This course is endorsed by The European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) and corresponds to the curriculum of the theoretical part of EFSUMB Level 1.  ​ 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 22-23th June 2023!
