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. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the retroperitoneum, peritoneal cavity, and abdominal wall. This type of ultrasound is commonly performed to assess the organs in the abdominal cavity, such as the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys.
