SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

Ultrasound plays a crucial role in the evaluation and management of patients with hepatobiliary and kidney diseases. The workshop is introduced in response to the industry demand and government healthcare policy in expanding capacity in skills upgrading of the current healthcare workforce.

This is a interactive workshop aims to provide participants with the advanced theoretical knowledge and clinical  skills in scanning the upper abdominal organs, namely liver, gallbladder and biliary system, kidneys (including urinary bladder), spleen and pancreas as well as the great vessels. In addition, core principles in abdominal ultrasound and FAST scan in trauma setting as well as advanced imaging techniques (elastography, contrast-enhanced ultrasound) will also be covered. Intensive hands-on practical session on healthy volunteers and simulators will be conducted to complete the knowledge and skillset acquisition in abdominal ultrasound.
