Join renowned SonoSkills founder and educator Mr. Marc Schmitz as he shares valuable POCUS tips, tricks, and best practices tailored for podiatrists and anyone with an interest in foot and ankle ultrasound.

In this 1-hour webinar, you’ll learn wireless ultrasound techniques to improve your scanning skills. With a focus on foot and ankle anatomy and pathophysiology of common conditions, expert sonographer Mr. Schmitz will teach:

  • Clinical and sonoanatomy of the foot and ankle
  • Where POCUS can enhance diagnostic capabilities
  • Scanner and patient positioning for static and dynamic imaging
  • Interpretation techniques tailored to podiatric applications
  • Common pathologies, injuries, and pathophysiologic mechanisms in foot and ankle

POCUS has emerged in recent years as an invaluable diagnostic tool that enables rapid, accurate diagnosis and informed decision-making. Real-time, non-invasive, non-ionizing imaging allows quick assessments that can augment your traditional clinical exam techniques.

Mr. Schmitz will share his extensive experience in MSK ultrasound, demonstrating anatomy and sonoanatomy, scanning techniques, and common pathologies of the Achilles tendon, plantar fascia, peroneal tendons, calf muscles, lateral ligaments, Morton’s neuroma and the ankle joint.

Whether you are a podiatrist, physiotherapist, orthopedic surgeon, or sports medicine physician, this webinar will cover a wide range of MSK ultrasound targeted to the foot and ankle, equipping you with the knowledge and skills necessary to harness the potential of POCUS in your clinical practice.

Mr. Schmitz will be joined by your host Shelley Guenther. Together, they will show how POCUS can aid in diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring of treatment progress, improving patient care and outcomes in foot and ankle health. Don’t miss this webinar – register today!

Marc Schmitz, MSc

During his MSc. at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Marc’s interest in functional human anatomy grew tremendously while dissecting and studying cadavers. It was here that his interest in observing functional human anatomy in “real-time” peaked, which led to the start of embracing musculoskeletal ultrasound. After completing numerous courses and attending conferences on the topic, he started developing his own course and SonoSkills was formed in 2010. Since then SonoSkills has taught its courses in 30 countries. Marc’s team consists out of 22 expert trainers. He teaches, next to managing SonoSkills, the foundational course and some intermediate level courses. Marc has a special interest in the shoulder joint.
