Description:
New for 2011! Our new combined short courses in abdominal and OB ultrasound allow you the flexibility to pick and choose the training options that work best for you and your schedule. Maximize your time away from the workplace and enroll for a combined course in Abdominal Ultrasound + OB three day. The focus of this six day course is to provide participants with the “need to know” information to efficiently and effectively complete a general abdominal and basic OB ultrasound procedure. The first three days of the course is the presentation of the basic ultrasound techniques involved in completing an abdominal ultrasound series and general handling of the ultrasound device. The course comprises an introduction to normal ultrasound anatomy of the abdominal organs, followed by lecture presentations of the common pathologic changes encountered in a diagnostic procedure. The OB course includes evaluation of the non-gravid pelvis, fetal measurements and the ultrasound appearance of fetal anomalies. Lecture is followed each day by a faculty supervised hands on ultrasound scan lab. The Interactive scan lab with live models and small groups allow each participant ample opportunity to gain the knowledge and skill needed to independently perform a basic abdominal ultrasound procedure.

Objectives
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
• Demonstrate a basic understanding of ultrasound physics
• Utilize the principles of instrumentation to set up ultrasound equipment for scanning
• Recognize and identify the organ systems of the abdomen on the ultrasound image
• Differentiate between normal and abnormal variants on an ultrasound image
• Perform a basic ultrasound procedure of the abdome
n • Recognize normal and abnormal pelvic anatomy
• Identify the difference in techniques related to transabdominal and transvaginal pelvic scanning techniques
• Apply appropriate measurement techniques in transabdominal and endovaginal scanning
