Point-of-Care Ultrasound in Nephrology [In-Person]

In-kind support is provided by EchoNous, Inc., FUJIFILM Sonosite, Inc., GE Healthcare, and Philips Healthcare North America.

Course Description

Over the past several years, point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has emerged as a valuable adjunct to physical examination in the diagnostic process, and using it is a required skill in emergency medicine and critical care training programs. Subspecialties including nephrology are already facing increasing demand for training in POCUS. Incoming trainees are often more technically skilled with POCUS than supervising physicians, which creates confusion in the clinical decision-making process. This program focuses on the integration of POCUS into clinical practice as well as the nephrology fellowship curriculum with an emphasis on ultrasound pattern recognition, grasp of medical literature, and hands-on exposure to sonographic technique and image acquisition.

Space is limited to 80 participants.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to: 1) define POCUS and recognize the scope and limitations of nephrology-related POCUS; 2) describe the common abnormalities encountered in nephrology-related diagnostic POCUS; 3) explain the basics of image archiving and requirements for billing; 4) discuss the emerging literature supporting POCUS in nephrology; and 5) describe the psychomotor skills necessary for basic image acquisition.
