Held continuously since 1983, this hands-on intense course will set you on the most practical and effective protocol to image the upper abdomen. You’ll learn how to orient yourself to three-dimensional anatomy with two dimensional imaging and document every pertinent feature of each organ. Both physicians and non-physician clinicians will find the class a bedrock foundation to rapidly advance in the field. Our total immersion approach has you at the bedside from the first day. You'll learn and practice over and over the complete head-to-toe protocol for assessment and measurement of all structures. The very small group setting fosters group interaction and collaborative learning. To help you gain proficiency with probe orientation and system controls the scan lab is open 24 hours for your independent practice on yourself or you peers.
Intensivists, emergency physicians, and primary care practitioners will find the focus on the hepatobiliary system alone a solid investment of their time.
