The Pediatric Orthopaedics and Radiology Departments of St.Luke' s Hospital under the auspices of the Hellenic Society of Musculosceletal Radiology are organising the 1st Infant Hip Ultrasound Course of Northern Greece which is Β to be held in Thessaloniki this upcoming September (8-10 September 2017).

Keynote speaker and trainer will be Professor Reinhard Graf, who has introduced and developed the most popular sonographic examination technique to date.

The Seminar programme is equivalent to that of seminars organised by Professor Graf in other countries. Participants are mainly radiologists, pediatric orthopaedic surgeons and medical professionals dealing with the diagnosis and/or treatment of Developmental Dysplasia of the hip (DDH).

Both theory and technique of the examination will be taught (including hands-on training) and the same time therapeutic approach and monitoring of treatment based on the sonographic findings will be discussed.

We are looking forward to meeting you at Thessaloniki in September!
