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.
Faculty: Debbie Robertson, BS, RDMS - No relevant financial relationships to disclose.
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
Physicians, Sonographers, PA’s, Nurse Practitioners, Midwives and other medical professionals using ultrasound to aid in the diagnosis of the GYN patient. Physicians can include but are not limited to the specialties of OB/GYN, Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine or Radiology.
Private Ultrasound Tutorial
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 Private Ultrasound Tutorial option. Additionally, private ultrasound tutorials 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.
