Starting the journey with learning ultrasound?
It can be a daunting prospect….where to start?
We all know how difficult it is to start learning ultrasound, and that it can often feel unclear like you are looking into the fog! This is where we hope to break topics down to make them more manageable. When you start to learn ultrasound it is confusing on a number of different levels! Not only as you start to try to interpret the images but also as you start to understand the different terminology. This has an impact upon your ability to create an accurate report.
We hope to cover the following topics
- Orientation to an ultrasound image
- Normal tissue structures
- Basic probe skills
- Key learning resources that are available eg books and online
- Continuing your professional development
