Requested by Attending Faculty at Harvard Medical School for critical care, this course goes deeper than just a protocol, all in a weekend. Gain authority with the instrument as you apply it to the complete protocols for the FAST and RUSH exams. It all serves as the platform for your further competence in any clinical application.
It's a refreshingly pleasant, low-stress approach to the complex science of acoustic and electronic engineering physics principles. The course demystifies the dry and often confusing elements surrounding ultrasound imaging and, especially, the machine controls. Our focus is on the technology and its proper and optimal use for any application. When you separately begin to build your protocols and procedures for a specific organ system you'll be ready to make the machine work for you. After hours the Scan Lab is open for your optional self-guided practice on technique and system controls on yourself or your peers from class. You can even bring your own equipment to fine tune your technique.
