Rehabilitative ultrasound imaging (RUSI) of the pelvic floor and associated viscera, is rapidly emerging as the gold standard for objective evaluation of function and motor control training of the pelvic floor musculature.
Most clinicians are familiar with transabdominal imaging of the PFM however, transperineal RUSI offers advanced applications for viewing the anus, rectum, and levator plate (posterior compartment), the vagina and uterus (central compartment), and urethra, urogenital diaphragm, and urinary bladder (anterior compartment).
This half-day advanced-level specialty webinar will provide instruction on:
- Current evidence for RUSI imaging of the pelvic floor structures within a pelvic health practice
- Image generation and of the pelvic floor and relative structures using a transabdominal and transperineal approach
- Ultrasound interpretation of tissue morphology related to transabdominal and transperineal viewing of the PFM and related anatomy
- Clinically relevant morphometry of pelvic floor structures for both the transabdominal and transperineal approach for male and female subjects
- Motor training of the PFM of both male and female subjects for applications of pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and outlet dysfunction constipation.
Following each lecture, there will be a live demonstration with male or female subjects showing transabdominal and transperineal approaches for a variety of pelvic health applications. Participants will be able to ask questions during the demonstration and interact remotely with the subjects.
