DUTEC 145 - General Ultrasound Lab II

4 CR

Continues upon General Ultrasound Lab I, featuring scanning techniques of the female and male reproductive organs, thyroid, neck, salivary glands, abdomen, and first, second and third-trimester obstetrics. Introduces spectral Doppler application and optimization.

Prerequisite(s): Acceptance into program or permission of program chair.

Course Outcomes
  • Identify anatomy, anatomic variants, relational anatomy, associated vasculature, and sonographic appearances of normal structures of the female pelvis, scrotum, thyroid, infant hips, neonatal brain, gastrointestinal tract, and salivary glands
  • Differentiate anatomy, anatomic variants, and sonographic appearances of normal maternal, embryonic, and fetal anatomic structures during the first, second, and third trimesters
  • Recognize sonographic technique, measurements, and Doppler patterns in the female pelvis, abdomen, scrotum, and thyroid
  • Assess various components of the scanning technique for an abdominal vasculature Doppler assessment of the hepatic, mesenteric, and renal vessels
  • Apply measurements to anatomical structures by use of electronic calipers and use appropriate labeling techniques
  • Practice and apply ergonomic techniques
  • Evaluate scanning protocol and modification(s) based on the sonographic findings and differential diagnoses
  • Recognize scanning challenges and learn how to overcome them by changing patient position, utilizing breathing techniques, using various probes and settings, and choosing optimal scanning windows
