SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

This workshop is designed to provide the advanced theoretical knowledge and skills to support and compliment the practical training required to produce a competent sonographer in paediatric and neonatal ultrasound. It also aims to develop an understanding of the role of ultrasound in response to the clinical request and its influence on patient management. Further aims are to enable the exploration of the role of ultrasound in comparison to other imaging techniques and investigative procedures that may be required to assist the diagnostic process. Hybrid instruction mode will be employed which combines didactic classroom teaching sessions with facilitated case-based learning, online learning activities and practical demonstration. Candidates will be guided in the competent production, interpretation and assessment of the paediatric and neonatal ultrasound images.

Teaching Team

What You’ll Learn

Participants will develop and enhance the theoretical knowledge and advanced image interpretation as well as specialist scanning skills in sonography of the paediatric and neonatal population.
Topics will include principle in neonatal and paediatric ultrasound scan, common indications, protocol and scanning technique of the infant/paediatric brain, neck, hip, spine, abdomen, kidney and bowel.
On completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
  1. Discuss the common indications for neonatal and paediatrics imaging requests
  2. Understand the basic principles and technical requirement of neonatal and paediatric ultrasound imaging
  3. Understand the criteria for diagnostic quality images
  4. Recognise modifications to routine scanning approaches and limitations in regards to imaging of neonates and paediatrics
  5. Recognize the normal and abnormal imaging characteristics of the neonatal and paediatric ultrasound scans

Who Should Attend

  • Radiographers practising ultrasound
  • Healthcare professionals involved in ultrasound work
