What are Courses?

Courses are guided lessons through anatomical topics, created by subject matter experts. Choose a Course to prepare for pre-med, add to your collection of revision material, or to enhance your knowledge of specific body regions or systems.

Courses are presented by a team of top anatomical experts from leading universities. These subject matter experts offer high quality, accurate information beginning from the key concepts and principles of human gross anatomy, to more advanced and complex material.

Courses are purchased within Complete Anatomy. A single purchase of a Course grants you access to its contents on any device that runs Complete Anatomy. Purchasing the Complete Anatomy Upgrade is not necessary to access Courses.

Point of Care Ultrasound

Point of Care Ultrasound

A supplemental anatomy course introducing the diagnostic imaging modality of ultrasound. Throughout this course the fundamental use and clinical application of ultrasound as a diagnostic tool will be explored through seven key examinations. In this course an overview of an e-FAST, AAA, Renal, Biliary, DVT, Basic Echo, and Lung scan will all be presented. Each scanning technique will introduce a relevant clinical case and guide course participants through the various relevant locations of interest and clinical concern.

The perfect course to introduce you the clinical application of ultrasound technology and its use as a diagnostic tool.

Discover key examinations that can be performed using ultrasound technology, including an e-FAST, AAA, Renal, Biliary, DVT, Basic Echo and Lung scan.

Understand the underlying anatomy and identify anatomical structures that appear on the ultrasound image.

Each scanning technique introduces a relevant clinical case that guides you through the areas of interest.

Learning Outcomes

  • Be introduced to point of care ultrasound as a tool which aids the clinician on bedside management
  • Understand regional anatomy relevant to the ultrasound performed and to be able to correlate this with images obtained on the ultrasound screen
  • Able to utilise correct ultrasound probe for the specific study
  • Able to optimise patient position to obtain relevant ultrasound windows
  • Become efficient at image optimisation by changing depth, focus and time-gain-compensation on the ultrasound
  • Able to conclude whether the ultrasound study is positive or negative for pathology
  • Able to use feedback given by accredited clinicians / sonographers to improve image acquisition
