ULTRASOUND TRAINING

ULTRASOUND IS AN INCREDIBLY POWERFUL TOOL FOR MEDICAL MISSION WORK.  ITS UTILITY CROSSES MANY SPECIALTIES, AND PRACTICAL ULTRASOUND SKILLS CAN BE LEARNED IN A SHORT TIME.  USING LIVE MODELS, PARTICIPANTS WILL REVIEW BASIC TECHNIQUES AND PRACTICE A VARIETY OF EXAMS UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF SKILLED MEDICAL MISSION SONOGRAPHERS.

Ultrasound workshops focus on:

  • Pre-natal and genitourinary/breast ultrasound

    • Placenta praevia, twins, fetal gender identification

    • External ultrasound techniques for ovarian and uterine exam

    • Breast mass ultrasound

  • Cardiac, hepato-biliary, and FAST ultrasound diagnoses

    • Congenital heart defects

    • Rheumatic Fever

    • Lithiasis

    • Acute abdominal screening

Participants should gain improved diagnostic ultrasound skill for more effective mission performance, and develop a foundation from which further self-directed sonography improvement can take place.
