Modular Ultrasound – Module 4 – Thoracic Ultrasound
About this course
This module is part of the Modular Ultrasound course.
This module will teach you the techniques required to perform an ultrasound examination of the thorax. Case-based examples will be used to demonstrate normal anatomic appearance and common abnormalities of both non cardiac and cardiac structures. The practical scanning sessions are a key aspect of this module as they will enable you to become confident in performing basic echocardiography in practice.
• Introduction to performing a two-dimensional ultrasound examination of the thorax including patient preparation and optimisation of image quality
• Practical scanning sessions focused on obtaining standard right-sided echocardiographic views
• Introduction to performing B-Mode and M-Mode measurements and calculations sessions
