Regions Now: An Introduction to Ultrasound for the general practitioner

Online , Online, Gloucester Gloucestershire, GL2 2AB

brought to you by South East region

In "An Introduction to ultrasound for the General Practitioner" we will look at how to easily set up and get the best image from your practice's ultrasound machine. We will take a look at the most common cases in general practice where the ultrasound machine can make the biggest difference to your patients.  The course will be split into two pre-recorded webinars and one live session. In the first webinar we will cover machine set up – we will look at the important physics which can help us make the adjustments we need to our image to get the best quality image possible. Importantly we will look at how to translate this knowledge onto the machine you have in your practice to make sure you are getting the most out of it. In the second webinar we will look at the most common cases in veterinary practice where ultrasound can make the biggest difference. These are the applications which can make a huge difference to your patients when you are able to recognise them. In this webinar we really want to make an impact on the population of patients you care for. To consolidate the information in the first two webinars we will hold a live session with cases, quizzes and where we will answer any questions you might have. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
