This two day course will familiarize participants with the skills and techniques needed to obtain diagnostic uterine, ovarian, and tubal images. The faculty will begin the course with a lecture reviewing the basic knowledge needed to properly perform and interpret transabdominal and endovaginal ultrasound scans. Gained knowledge will then be utilized in hands-on scan lab where participants have the opportunity to practice scanning a variety of models. Faculty supervised scanning builds confidence and aids in the hand-eye coordination necessary to perform and interpret the ultrasound exam. The addition of Doppler ultrasound as an adjunct imaging method to the scanning skills will aid better diagnosis and interpretation of pelvic pathology by participants. Sonohysterography is included.
Techniques for endovaginal transducer cleaning and infection control will be demonstrated.
