A hands-on Introduction to POCUS for the general physician
Point-of-care ultrasound has been shown to be a valuable additional tool in the assessment of patients, with the potential to reduce delays to patient care, improve the success rate of tricky interventional procedures and improve confidence in treatment/referral decisions.
In this hands-on session you will have the opportunity to scan both phantoms and live volunteers using the latest handheld and laptop ultrasound technology. Our ultrasound clinical specialist, Claire, will guide you on how to use the equipment including discussion around equipment choice, image optimisation and correct imaging technique.
This session is open to all levels:
You may be new to ultrasound and want to ‘have a go’ in a risk-free environment.
You may already be using ultrasound in your daily practice but find you can sometimes struggle to achieve an optimal image or are unsure of how to fully optimise your equipment.
You may be proficient in ultrasound imaging but wish to see what the latest technology has on offer, or want to discuss how we can help you with your educational requirements for yourself or your team.
This session aims to help you become a little more confident in the use of ultrasound equipment and interpretation of the ultrasound image. There will be the opportunity to discuss how Ballater Medical Ltd can create bespoke ultrasound training sessions or provide you or your practice with the equipment you need to set up a successful ultrasound service.
