Ultrasonography is an integral component of providing an optimal standard of patient care. Beginning with the basics, you will participate in interactive discussions on ultrasonographic anatomy and disease recognition, receive an orientation to the ultrasound machine and how to optimize its performance and learn scanning principles and the ultrasonographic appearance of normal abdominal organs and artifacts.
At CVC, you’ll gain hands-on abdominal scanning practice under the guidance of imaging experts who will help you hone your ultrasonographic examination skills. Several types of machines will be available for your use in evaluating the liver, spleen, kidney, bowel, and bladder. You will also have the opportunity to evaluate regions of the pancreas, adrenal glands, and abdominal lymph nodes.
Whether you are a beginner or already have experience, this extensive Specialty Focus course will show you how to get the most out of your abdominal scans.
