Take home message of our 1st MSU workshop

Written by Simon van Hooland on September 21, 2015.

During our first musculoskeletal ultrasound workshop, a dialogue between radiologists and general practitioners/kinesitherapists was initiated. An important question was raised : what is the role of ultrasound in a busy GP/kine practice in Belgium?  Conclusion: There is definitely a place in the primary care setting for the use of ultrasound, but it should be limited to screening, telling normal from abnormal. It's important to know your limitations. Connect with one or more specialists (radiologists, other specialist who's an expert in ultrasound) with who you can collaborate in a multidisciplinary team setting (referral and discussion about your patients pathology).
