EURO-MUSCULUS

EURO-MUSCULUS, is a study group of European physiatrists (Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine physicians) who actively use musculoskeletal ultrasonography in their clinical practice and academic studies. Accordingly, the name MUSCULUS& (Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography) implies that the group pertains to musculoskeletal physicians.

EURO-MUSCULUS is founded by Turkey and Belgium as the leading countries; but it also comprises colleagues from other European countries. Further, it is open to all physiatrists as well, should they be interested to actively participate in this working group. We hope that our group will always expand and that we will also have the chance to collaborate with increasing number of physiatrists in the near future. Yet, the probe of ultrasound has already become the “stethoscope” or the “extended hand” of musculoskeletal physicians.
