The focus of this three day course is to provide participants with the confidence necessary to complete an abdominal ultrasound based on AIUM protocols. The course covers the basic protocols involved in an examination and general use of the ultrasound system. Normal anatomy of the liver, gall bladder, kidneys, spleen, abdominal vessels, and pancreas will be discussed. Also included are soft tissue applications and abdominal Doppler. The participants will gain experience through lecture and faculty supervised hands on scanning. This format allows each participant ample opportunity to gain the knowledge and confidence needed to independently perform a basic abdominal ultrasound.
Faculty: Shawn Shanmuganathan, BS, RDMS, RVT- No relevant financial relationships to disclose.
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
Physicians who are at the entry level of ultrasound scanning and interpretation. Other health professionals learning abdominal ultrasound or cross training, including: sonographers, physician assistants, etc.
Scan With the Experts
We understand that you may want/need to practice your new skill set more than the regularly scheduled courses allow. You can add an extra day of scanning in addition to this course by calling AHEC and speaking to a faculty member about our Scan with the Experts option. Additionally, Scan with the Experts sessions can be set up without registering for a regularly scheduled course to enhance your already developed skills.
