Pediatric Lung Sonography: Advanced Clinical Module
This Pediatric Lung Sonography: Advanced Clinical Module will examine the role of sonography in the evaluation of pediatric patients presenting with a variety of normal and pathologic pulmonary conditions. The sonographic characteristics of the more commonly encountered pediatric respiratory conditions will be discussed, with special emphasis on diseases of neonates and infants. The Course reviews relevant anatomy and explores the role of sonography in the evaluation of respiratory conditions such as: pneumonia, pleural effusion, pneumothorax, atelectasis, transient tachypnea, meconium aspiration syndrome, respiratory distress syndrome, bronchiolitis, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
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 sonographic examination of pediatric patients presenting with respiratory conditions.
- Anatomy & Physiology

- Imaging Tips & Pitfalls
Hands-On CasesThe SonoSimulator® will help you develop the requisite cognitive task awareness and visuospatial skills required to perform sonographic examination of pediatric patients presenting with respiratory conditions. You will be provided with the opportunity to scan real-patient ultrasound cases comprising a myriad of pathologies. Each individual hands-on training case is accompanied by image window-specific expert instruction and probe-positioning guidance.
- 10 real-patient cases that feature:
- Air bronchograms
- Bacterial pneumonia
- Cardiogenic pulmonary edema
- Coalescent b-lines (white lung appearance)
- Diffuse air bronchograms
- Respiratory distress syndrome
- Pleural effusion
- Severe alveolar interstitial syndrome
- Subpleural consolidations
- Thickened and irregular pleurae
- M-Mode imaging
Knowledge Assessment with Performance Tracking
- 15 interspersed questions and answers with real-time feedback
- 20-question Mastery Test
