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.
