Nailfold Capillaroscopy course 2019

This one-day course will provide delegates with a detailed overview of nailfold capillaroscopy, including diagnostic guidance, clinical examples and research applications.

Attendees will have the chance to learn from clinical and technical experts the relative merits of various capillaroscopy devices, including both high magnification (videocapillaroscopy) and low magnification systems (dermoscopy, USB microscopy).

There will be a key focus on practical, hands-on learning with a number of microscopes and imaging systems available to use as well as live demonstrations with patients.

Who should attend?

Rheumatology consultants, rheumatology trainees, and allied health professionals with an interest in capillaroscopy (for example, specialist nurses or vascular technicians at scleroderma centres).


Registration for this course will open in January 2019. To register your interest in attending please email us.
