A course dedicated to Pelvic floor ultrasound, in its different modalities: transanal, transrectal, transvaginal and an introduction to transperineal ultrasound.

The course focuses mainly on the pathological issues of the posterior compartment, but also covers issues related to the middle and anterior compartments.

Specifically, the following pathologies are dealt with from an ultrasound point of view:

  • Faecal incontinence

  • Anal sepsis

  • Rectal and anal cancer

  • Pelvic prolapse

The course is aimed at those who have a rudimentary knowledge of transanal ultrasound and those who have a limited hands on experience but are keen to implement within their clinical practice.



The course will be delivered by the instructor through the Zoom platform and will have a limited number of participants, to make sure that everyone can participate with direct questions to the Tutor.

The programme is organised as follows:

  • Basic principles of ultrasound

  • Ultrasound anatomy of Anal Canal, Rectum and Pelvic Floor
