This unit is designed to cover the theory and practice of basic soft tissue ultrasound imaging (lower body) and is appropriate for science graduates and allied health professionals wishing to use ultrasound as a focused diagnostic tool at the point of care. The unit will interest students engaged in managing soft tissue injury and pathology, or science graduates interested in lower body musculoskeletal imaging. You will develop knowledge of lower body musculoskeletal ultrasound with emphasis on interpretation of anatomical structures, biomechanics, and pathology. You will differentiate musculoskeletal pathology from that of other body structures. You will apply techniques for obtaining, interpreting and assessing optimised ultrasound images in the university ultrasound scanning facilities.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 6-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.
