Stine Carstensen focuses on training and assessment of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSUS) including invasive procedures (e.g. joint injections and aspirations). During her Ph.D. she will examine the effect of theoretical knowledge on practical performance in MSUS, using a novel developed e-learning ultrasound platform.

Future studies will aim to collect validity evidence for the use and interpretation of two assessment tools in MSUS, 1) Objective Structures Assessment of Ultrasound skills and 2) Interventional Ultrasound Skills Evaluation. Furthermore, she plans to examine the effect of simulation-based training on performance of ultrasound-guided joint aspiration and injection.
