Conference Brochure

Ultrasound In Right Upper Quadrant Pain - 1 Day Course is organized by Australian Institute of Ultrasound (AIU) and will be held on Jan 17, 2019 at Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold coast, Queensland, Australia. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 8 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours.

Conference Description :
A common clinical question is the source of right upper quadrant (RUQ) pain; the commonest cause will be cholecystitis. When asked to investigate RUQ pain, in a formal sonography model, this problem could involve three separate examinations - gallbladder, lung and kidney. The benefit if this course is that it will introduce you to biliary, renal and simple lung base scanning techniques, all in one day. These scans are ‘triage tools’ that enable the clinician to choose the next most appropriate formal test, assign appropriate urgency, and commence the best treatment in the interim. Ideally attendees should feel comfortable with machine optimisation and probe manipulation skills.

Accreditation :
This course accredited for 8 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours as complying with ACEM standards and policies for Hepatobiliary, Renal Tract Ultrasound Detection and Characterization of an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.
