Quality medical care in low-resource settings is often hampered by lack of objective clinical information. Ultrasound has proven to be a particularly useful technology in such settings, providing vital data to support patient care decision-making. What’s more, technical advances are making ultrasound equipment ever more transportable, affordable, and accessible.
The INMED Ultrasound for Primary Care Course is a hybrid course that combines online preparation with a one-day in-classroom event that provides didactic and hands-on skills in non-obstetric ultrasound imaging, including thyroid, venous and DVT screening, vascular and carotid, abdominal and renal, cardiac and thoracic. Each participant will be supervised in learning normal scan planes, ultrasound techniques, and equipment control. Practical issues in obtaining and maintaining ultrasound equipment will also be addressed.
