According to GE Healthcare ultrasound training manager Karen Walton: “In these days of multi-featured ultrasound systems, it is easy for users to overlook the full potential of their machine. To fill this gap, GE Healthcare offers further training, building on the post-sales applications training, so that users get the full benefit of their system.”
A recent education session, held at the Company’s training centre in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, attracted twenty users comprising gynaecologists, sonographers and radiologists to look at the role of 3D ultrasound in gynaecology.
The morning included an insight into the basics of the topic, highlighted by a presentation by Mr Nick Raine-Fenning, senior lecturer in reproductive medicine at Nottingham, who spoke on his clinical experience with volume ultrasound.
To help improve confidence in 3D in the clinical setting, the afternoon session was devoted to hands-on workshops, under the guidance of expert mentors, which allowed the students to see for themselves the clinical advantages of 3D applications in ultrasound using archived volume files.
