Aim of the Course
Learn the main components and controls of an ultrasound machine.

Course Description
At the end of this course, you will have acquired enough knowledge to be able to select the correct transducers for different studies, have an understanding of the different ultrasound imaging controls and the tricks to optimise the ultrasound images.

This course is accredited by the EACCME (European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education) to provide CME credits. This means learners may earn up to 4 European CME credits. Learners from the USA may convert European CME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA).

This course is available at the price of £39.99.
