Beginners Ultrasound | Introduction to Hands-On Ultrasound for Everyone (Mar 2018)
Beginners Ultrasound | Introduction to Hands-On Ultrasound for Everyone is organized by Keith Mauney and Associates Ultrasound Training Institutes and will be held during Mar 03 - 04, 2018 at Homewood Suites by Hilton Dallas-Irving-Las Colinas, Irving, Texas, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is Intensivists, Emergency Physicians, Paramedics, New Sonographers, Allied Health Professionals and Those Entering Healthcare, Veterinary Medicine, Research & Medical Device Professionals.
Conference Description :
Ultrasound got its start as a device for industrial materials testing. We've adapted these same principles to human anatomy, function, and pathophysiology, and we've refined our approach before tens of thousands of learners for decades. Our class size is microscopically small so we can spend plenty of time with you face to face, to inform, encourage and support you from the start. And we'll open the Hands-On Scan Lab after hours during the evening for your independent practice. You'll have comprehensive, understandable print materials to refer to forever. And after the weekend is over, we'll stay with you for life, with free post-class support in perpetuity.
Conference Objectives are :
• Describe the systematic process by which ultrasound is generated, detected and processed into an image for analysis.
• Relate the physical phases of the acoustic wave to tissue response with emphasis on mechanical and thermal index.
• Define and describe in layman's terms each of the principal vocabulary terms pertaining to ultrasound physics and instrumentation.
• Demonstrate proper probe grasp and manipulation technique for proper ergonomics and maximum dexterity.
• Apply a tactile approach to scanning to maximize stereotactic feedback.
• Translate 3-D anatomical relationships into 2-D reasoning and vice-versa by applying core principles of abstract spatial reasoning.
• Incorporate a full-field method of critical conspicuity to evaluate the entire content of an image immediately.
• Describe the principal controls of the ultrasound imaging system and effectively use each to optimize findings.
• Demonstrate proper use of overall and selective gain, depth and focus to optimize the acquired image.
• Set up image display controls on any monitor to maximize input dynamic range to output display capability properly optimized to the human eye.
• Make full use of all chroma and achromatic post-processing controls to amplify soft tissue definition and relate subsequent findings to soft tissue composition.
• Perform Doppler assessment of any vessel or valve using proper angle correction and display controls to maintain compliance with ICAVL Standards.
• Perform a visual inspection of the machine to identify any potential electrical or biohazard.
