Abdominal Ultrasound (4 Day) December
December 16 - December 19
Format: Lecture, demonstrations, and hands-on scanning experience.
This course will present concise review of ultrasound physics and instrumentation followed by a sequential introduction of the abdominal systems with anatomy and vasculature with the aim of acquiring skills for complete upper abdomen and small parts protocols:
- Prevertebral Vessels
- Liver and Biliary System
- Pancreas and Spleen
- Kidney and Retroperitoneum
Case studies and ultrasound images are used to demonstrate the correlation of ultrasound appearance of normal versus abnormal tissues.
