Emphasis is placed on an integrated approach combining details of normal ultrasound anatomy and typical ultrasound patterns of abdominal pathology.
Specific lecture topics include a review of principles of ultrasound physics, instrumentation and imaging techniques including Doppler, and ultrasound evaluation of:
• Great Vessels
• Biliary System
• Abdominal Doppler (liver, renal, and mesentery)
• Thyroid & Parathyroid
Through attending this course, the participant should be able to:
• Recognize the acoustic representation of normal abdominal anatomy and identify pathologies of the abdomen from ultrasound images
• Understand and discuss the capabilities and limitations of ultrasound evaluation of the abdomen
• Demonstrate improved case interpretation ability
Optional Hands-On Session:
An optional hands-on scanning session is available on Saturday morning from 9:00 am to approximately noon. This session allows students the opportunity to scan models using a variety of ultrasound equipment.
