What you'll learn

Ultrasound has become one of the essential diagnostic aids in the field of medicine due to increased abnormalities and defects in the organs. Its importance and usage in detecting lower limb arteries blockage are increasing day by day due to an increase in in-depth vein thrombosis cases. It uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the body on to the monitor.

It is also called sonography. Due to an increase in peripheral artery diseases among people, ultrasonography is gaining much importance in detecting the blockages in lower limb arteries. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the lower limb arteries. The interactive simulator provides eight different scenarios to test your ability to perform this type of scan.

Online simulations enable you to build or refresh knowledge and cognitive skills and offer a safe practice environment so you can prepare for the real clinical world. You can also use simulations to try out procedures that you might not otherwise experience.
