aorta

Aorta

After completing the aorta ultrasound course, participants should be able to: identify the anatomical structures visualized during the aorta examination, recognize the various types of abdominal aortic aneurysms and perform their associated measurements, and determine the preferred transducer to perform the aorta exam.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Point-of-care ultrasound is a powerful tool in evaluating a patient for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). This course describes the simplified protocol of assessing the common femoral and popliteal veins for DVT, a method that is well-accepted when used in conjunction with clinical assessments for ruling in/out DVT.

eFAST

eFAST

This valuable exam assesses the trauma patient for internal free fluid collection in the thorax and abdomen. Course participants will learn to identify the internal anatomy seen during the eFAST examination on ultrasound. In addition, students must be able to recognize abnormalities commonly encountered during an eFAST exam, and determine the appropriate transducer for different patient body types.

Gallbladder

Gallbladder

The gallbladder is not a fixed organ. Learn the best anatomical landmarks to help you locate and correctly identify the gallbladder and assess for cholecystitis and/or cholelithiasis. Differentiate between hepatic and portal veins and other vessels like ducts and arteries, and learn to spot the symptoms of gallbladder pathology, such as pericholecystic fluid, enlarged bile duct and gallbladder walls, and gallstones.

Lung

Lung

Lung ultrasound is a new and exciting frontier for point-of-care imaging. Recently, studies have shown that air, once considered a hindering artifact on ultrasound scans, can be used to identify specific lung pathologies, like pneumonia. This course reviews lung ultrasound as it relates to the point-of-care market.

Ocular

Ocular Ultrasound

The eye can easily be visualized using ultrasound. Pathologies such as retinal detachment, vitreous detachment/hemorrhage, abnormal intracranial pressure, papilledema, and ruptured globe can be identified even by the novice users of ultrasound. Learn which transducers, exam types, and gain/depth settings are ideal for ophthomalogical imaging.

Pelvic First Trimester Pregnancy

Pelvic: First Trimester Pregnancy Evaluation

Understand the basic ultrasound views and techniques associated with performing an ultrasound pelvic examination for first trimester pregnancy, surrounding anatomical structures, and proper equipment settings. In addition, support literature, case studies, pathology images, and videos may be included for review. 

RUSH

RUSH

The RUSH course is designed for medical professionals with comprehensive knowledge of the core underlying concepts of the RUSH protocol, which includes cardiac, Inferior Vena Cava (IVC), eFAST, lung, aorta, and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) ultrasound examinations. Learn the RUSH protocol for assessing patients in shock.
