Course 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.
Course Content :
• Renal calculi & Hydronephrosis.
• Lung bases- pleural effusion.
Course Objectives are :
• Identify the parameters for the safe application of ultrasound and its limitations in medical diagnosis.
• Identify the physical principles, artefacts and the steps for image optimisation while performing ultrasound.
• Practice “hands on” ultrasound scanning skills required to maximise diagnostic ability in answering relevant clinical questions.
• Recognise the sonographic appearances of normal and abnormal structures required to answer common clinical questions.
• Perform ultrasound RUQ, Lung and Biliary scanning techniques.
• Acquire images obtained on normal adult volunteers & phantoms.
• Interpret images from normal adult volunteers.
• Equip the learner with the foundation skills to begin to incorporate the ultrasound skills with the clinical situation to make appropriate management decisions.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
