Backhaus M, et al. Ann Rheum Dis 2001) to the course organizers via email: .
  • Images should be presented in a power point file. Important: Each slide should include: – One imaged structure each in longitudinal and transverse plane – A legend with the anatomic area, imaged structure and scanning planes – Parameters of the ultrasound machine – Identity of the person scanned should be removed.
  • The faculty members need to provide assessment and feedback. Applicants might need to be asked to repeat the ultrasound examinations and submit the images again for assessment by the faculty.
  • Upon approval of the assessment, the applicant needs to be asked to register for the course.
  • Participants should bring a total of 60 normal ultrasound examinations (each in a power point presentation) on a USB stick to the course. The faculty reserves the right to randomly request and audit the full set of ultrasound examinations from each participant.
