Requested by the Attending Faculty at Harvard Medical School for critical care, this course goes deeper than just a protocol, all in a weekend.
You'll spend the first hour of the course with the probe in your hand and continue to the end. We'll take months off your hand-eye learning curve and even more off your critical matrix mindset. Pertinent lecture topics and system controls are discussed while you scan.
After hours the scan lab is open for you 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.
From the smallest hospitals to Harvard Medical School
& St. Jude Children's, we've served them all.
In the industry from GE & Philips to Toshiba and Siemens;
solo practitioners to the entire Puerto Rico Cardiology Society.
Single-event or ongoing Resident training anywhere.
-Individuals or groups of any size, working within your practice hours
-Special programs for Resident training
HOURS: First day 9am-4pm . Adjourn by noon Day 2. Scan lab open after hours throughout the entire class time. This class immediately precedes our separate Hands-On Abdominal and Cardiac Imaging classes which continue through the next week.
LOCATION: Class held on site at the Hyatt House Suite Hotel, Irving, Texas. Discounted student rate guaranteed.

Open to physicians and clinicians from all specialties and levels of experience. The very small class size permits us to identify your needs and target your specific goals with precision.
Professionals working in any segment of the medical imaging industry find the setting ideal to gain perspective on their product's features applied to clinical service.
Field service engineers can gain essential hand-eye and image analysis skills to be able to troubleshoot end-user-related maintenance issues quickly.
This course is conducted independent of any commercial or institutional grant, industry support or sponsorship. No faculty members have any commercial interests or participation that might influence its content. Upon completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- Efficiently follow a systematic protocol for assessment of each of the following:
-perirenal and perispenic fluid
-pericardial effusion vs. hemopericardium
-global and regional myocardial function
-aortic and mitral valvular regurgitation
-normal vs. increased CVP
-hepatic and portal venous hypertension
-biliary obstruction and renal lithiasis
-acute extracranial carotid occlusion
-Incorporate a full-field method of critical conspicuity to evaluate the entire content of any image immediately.
-Describe the principal controls of the ultrasound imaging system and effectively use each to optimize findings.
-Set up image display controls on any monitor to maximize input dynamic range to output display capability, optimized to the human eye.
-Make full use of all post-processing controls to amplify soft tissue definition and relate subsequent findings to soft tissue composition.
-Translate 3-D anatomical relationships into 2-D reasoning and vice-versa by applying core principles of abstract spatial reasoning.
-Perform a visual inspection of the machine to identify any potential electrical or biohazard.
-Perform Doppler assessment of any vessel or valve using proper angle correction and display controls to maintain compliance with ICAVL Standards.
Physicians who attend this course will find these of special interest:
Complete protocol for assessment of all structures, and function using all modalities of imaging and Doppler. All standard ASE views and measurements for structure, function, and Doppler using all image and Doppler modalities.
