Ultrasound for Primary Care
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 thyroid, venous and DVT screening, vascular and carotid, abdominal and renal, cardiac, thoracic, joint and venous access imaging. Obstetric ultrasound imaging is not currently included. Each participant will be supervised in learning ultrasound techniques, equipment control, normal scan planes, and scan interpretation. Practical issues in obtaining and maintaining ultrasound equipment will also be addressed.
