GYN Ultrasound Normal Adnexa: Advanced Clinical Module
This SonoSim® Advanced Clinical Module begins with an overview of normal female adnexal anatomy and physiology. Optimal transducer selection, patient preparation and positioning, and proper ultrasound transducer disinfection techniques are reviewed. A complete description of the use of transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound techniques to examine the normal female adnexa is provided. The Course concludes by introducing common adnexal findings that are a part of normal female physiology.
Didactic knowledge is assessed with in-module questions and an end-module mastery test. The patented SonoSimulator® will help you develop the requisite hands-on psychomotor skills and cognitive task awareness required to perform transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound evaluation of the aforementioned conditions.
- Adnexal Anatomy
