Physics-Sonography Principles & Instrumentation Registry Review is organized by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute (GCUS) Inc. and will be held from Nov 30, 2017 - Nov 30, 2020. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 9.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.
Physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals involved with performing and interpreting diagnostic ultrasound examinations. Physician participants may include cardiology, vascular, general, point of care, and OB-GYN.
Physics-Sonography Principles & Instrumentation Registry Review Online Course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of sonography principles and instrumentation for those individuals preparing to take the ARDMS, APCA, ASRT, or CCI ultrasound certification examinations.
The Physics-Sonography Principles & Instrumentation Registry Review Online Course is also helpful for those who need a refresher pertaining to ultrasound physics to improve competence to perform and interpret ultrasound examinations.
Additionally, the GCUS Registry Review PASS Guarantee offers you access to the online course version of your registry review program for 90 days if you do not pass your registry exam after completing one of our review programs. Just send us a copy of your exam score (registry exam must be taken within six months of our review) and we’ll grant you a 90 day access to the online course version of the review.
