Event Description

he focus of this four day course is to provide participants with the confidence necessary to complete an abdominal ultrasound based on AIUM protocols. The course covers the basic protocols involved in an examination and general use of the ultrasound system. Normal anatomy of the liver, gall bladder, kidneys, spleen, abdominal vessels, and pancreas will be discussed. Also included are soft tissue applications and abdominal doppler.

The first three days the participants will gain experience through lecture and faculty supervised hands on scanning. This format allows each participant ample opportunity to gain the knowledge and confidence needed to independently perform a basic abdominal ultrasound. The final day of this course will be spent entirely in the scanning lab. We will simulate a clinical lab setting with live models allowing participants to perfect their protocols.

A complete two-week program can be accomplished with this course followed by the five day OB/GYN Ultrasound course.

Scan with the experts:

Sometimes it takes an additional day or two of scanning to generate confidence in your new skill set. If you would like to add a day or two, all our ultrasound skills courses can be scheduled with additional scan days in our state of the art interactive scan lab. Give us a call and discuss your needs with our faculty so we can help you achieve your goals.

At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

  • Utilize the principles of instrumentation to set up ultrasound equipment for obtaining diagnostic images according to AIUM guidelines.
  • Recognize and identify the organ systems in the abdomen on an ultrasound image.
  • Perform abdominal Doppler using Color and Pulsed Wave Doppler
  • Understand and identify pathological variants.
  • Follow the sequence of an abdominal ultrasound procedure from the beginning to its conclusion.
  • Recognize and identify the thyroid, scrotum, and appendix
