Develop a greater understanding of the benefits of abdominal radiography and improve your imaging evaluation of common abdominal diseases. This course focuses on a radiographic approach to abdominal imaging but will supplement radiographic imaging with other imaging modalities. The usefulness of ultrasonography will be explored for imaging abdominal viscera and, where relevant, the application of other modalities such as computer tomography (CT) will be discussed and demonstrated. While this is not primarily an ultrasound course, the comparative usefulness of radiography and ultrasound will be included wherever possible. You can expect to further your knowledge of ultrasound and its indications. You will not be required to have an ultrasound machine in your practice; for those that do, however, there will be some practical sonographic tasks.
