Ultrasound is playing an increasingly important role in gynecology. Important additional information can be added to the physical exam findings when the uterus and ovaries are visualized with ultrasound. This two day course will familiarize you with the skills and techniques needed to obtain diagnostic images. We will begin the course with a lecture reviewing the basic knowledge needed to properly perform and interpret transabdominal and endovaginal ultrasound scans.

This knowledge will then be utilized in our hands on scan lab where participants have the opportunity to practice scanning a variety of models. Faculty supervised scanning builds confidence and aids in the hand-eye coordination necessary to perform and interpret the ultrasound exam. The addition of Doppler to the study will aid in the diagnosis and interpretation of pelvic pathology.


At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

  • Successfully complete transabdominal and endovaginal ultrasound examinations and  protocols according to AIUM guidelines.
  • Identify and display appropriate normal anatomy and orientation in the ultrasound field of view.
  • Use an endovaginal transducer to perform the procedure.
  • Demonstrate techniques for transducer cleaning and infection control.
  • Use Doppler ultrasound as an adjunct imaging method when appropriate in a gynecological exam.

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. Call AHEC at 1-800-239-1361 for more information.
