ultrasound case, incorporate ultrasound into their practice, and how to create a study for someone to
interpret, of the five main abdominal organs. This will be accomplished through learning the basic knobs
necessary to create a diagnostic image, how to tweak that image with these knobs, do measurements, and
follow a scanning protocol. Recognizing artifacts will be covered, as well as how to quickly assess a trauma
case with ultrasound. Hands-on scanning will reinforce the Online didactic portion, and recognizing normal
tissue. Attendees will earn 14 RACE approved CE credits.
