The art and science of abdominal ultrasound require a complete and thorough understanding of the knowledge and clinical skills needed to perform these important clinical procedures. This dynamic training course uses an integrated approach of lecture, demonstrations, and hands-on scanning experience with models to accomplish those training goals in a comprehensive five day program.
Our training model for skills classes follows a systematic approach of presenting a concise review of ultrasound physics and instrumentation followed by a sequential introduction of the abdominal systems with anatomy and vasculature. Case studies and ultrasound images are used to demonstrate the correlation of ultrasound appearance of normal versus abnormal tissues. The afternoon hands on scanning labs reinforce the knowledge acquired in the lecture setting with the necessary clinical skills to acquire and maximize a diagnostic image. By the conclusion of the training course participants have acquired the knowledge and skill required to a complete upper abdomen and small parts protocol. A variety of ultrasound equipment is available in the scan lab.
