Dear colleagUS/friendUS

It is our great pleasure and honor to invite you to WORLD-MUSCULUS 2019 which will be held this year in Colombia. After having organized EURO-MUSCULUS courses annually since 2010, we have decided to move all around the world as well. Yet, the role of ultrasound imaging has already been established in PRM and the awareness of physiatrists is ever-mounting worldwide. In this regard, the first WORLD-MUSCULUS (outside Europe) was successfully organized in Philippines last year…

Each year, we are adding new concepts and new topics in accordance with the needs of musculoskeletal physicians i.e. in the light of the evolving technology and accumulating body of evidence-based data in the pertinent literature alike. This year our 3-day event will be composed of two simultaneous courses. In the first two days, while the participants will be studying the six joints and their common pathologies on the Basic side; they will focus more on nerves and spasticity on the Advance side. On the last day, we will study altogether several ultrasound-guided interventions that are commonplace in (daily clinical practice of) musculoskeletal medicine…

We do look forward to welcoming you all in this charming country. Don’t forget; ultrasound is already ‘La historia de un amor’ in physiatry!
