Ultrasound Physics for Clinical Imaging - ULTRASOUND IMAGING IN CRITICAL CARE




The Ultrasound Physics for Critical Care Imaging is the pre-requisite/co-requisite for our suite of ultrasound imaging short courses. In order to complete the first short course in our suite, you will need to successfully complete this physics module

This module provides an overview of ultrasound physics and equipment instrumentation. You will acquire knowledge about ultrasound beam formation and its interactions with various body tissues when applied to clinical image acquisition. You will be able to describe how an image is generated, how to correctly identify and differentiate pathologies from imaging artifacts. You will also acquire an in-depth knowledge of the limitations of ultrasound, and the ability to optimise equipment settings in order to examine patients both safely and with high acuity.

This innovative learning initiative is an education partnership between Eastern Health, Monash Health and Monash University. You will be guided by leading expert clinicians and highly experienced sonographers, supported by educational experts from Monash University. 

This physics module is available for a period of 18 weeks and should take approximately 20 to 24 hours to complete.
