Abdominal Ultrasound 2017
Sat, January 28, 2017 - Sun, January 29, 2017
This course is designed to provide an introduction to abdominal ultrasound as well as improve diagnostic skills of participants with ultrasound experience. Basic principles of image acquisition, optimization and interpretation will be presented. Discussion of machine "knobology", artifacts and scanning techniques in lecture and wet lab sessions are aimed at developing and improving the diagnostic information obtained with diagnostic ultrasound imaging. Normal anatomy will be covered and contrasted with pathological changes in the major abdominal organ systems. Video case presentations following the first wet lab are designed to help participants begin to "put it all together." The wet labs provide multiple stations with an instructor at each station to provide one-on-one instruction and guidance. At the end of the course, participants should be able to perform a complete abdominal ultrasound examination and recognize normal versus abnormal findings
This course provides 15 CE Hours
Maximum Capacity: 18
