Samenvatting

The use of musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSU) has been increasing amongst physiotherapist. The efficacy of MSU as a biofeedback training tool diaphragm muscle has not yet been evaluated even though it is a muscle known to be vital in contributing to spinal stability. Before assessing the effectiveness of MSU as a biofeedback training tool of the diaphragm, it is essential to investigate the inter-rater reliability to guarantee dependable results. In addition; the influence of the professional background amongst raters while using MSU has not yet been evaluated. Therefore this study will address the following question: What is the inter-rater reliability amongst students of three different paramedical backgrounds (Speech therapist, Physiotherapist and Radiologist-assistant) of MSU when measuring the thickness of the diaphragm during respiratory pause, full inhalation and full exhalation.
