Neonatal and Infant Neurosonography: Advanced Clinical Module
This Advanced Clinical Module teaches the fundamental elements of how to perform neonatal and infant neurosonography. The Course begins with a thorough overview of the neuroanatomy of preterm and term neonates and infants, and explores the clinical indications for sonographic examination. Subsequent lessons provide an in-depth review of sonographic neuroanatomy and imaging techniques, and introduce several more commonly encountered pathologic conditions.
In-module questions and a final mastery test assess didactic knowledge. The patented SonoSimulator® will help you develop the requisite cognitive task awareness and visuospatial skills required to perform neonatal and infant neurosonography.
