What you'll learn

Diagnostic ultrasound is a rapidly evolving imaging technology that is utilized in both industrialized and developing countries. Since its introduction, its application was widespread in anatomical imaging, blood flow measurement, and evaluation of physiology in almost all aspects of medicine. The ultrasound imaging technique has replaced or complemented a large number of radiographic and nuclear medicine procedures and has opened new diagnostic investigation areas. read more »»

A good medical practice requires ultrasonography practitioners to consider the risks and benefits of diagnostic examinations and to take all proper measures to ensure maximum patient benefit with minimum risk. Health care professionals should have adequate and thorough knowledge of ultrasound equipment, indications, contraindications, and how to use ultrasound, which is very important for diagnosing and reducing the risk of further complications.

Ultrasound assessment is used to identify developmental defects and assist in the diagnosis of various conditions and anomalies in the pediatric patient. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the pediatric spine and hip. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that test your ability to perform an ultrasound examination of the pediatric abdomen.
