Socially distanced practical courses are planned

Canon Medical Systems and Wessex Diagnostic say they are offering a gentle return to hands-on accredited CPD training with workshops this summer and autumn. Socially distanced courses, subject to government guidance, will offer lectures by faculty members alongside workshops using the latest equipment.

Wessex Diagnostic director Helen Humphries said: “Here delegates can bounce ideas off some of the leading lights in the ultrasound sector. We’re delighted to be offering delegates a safe learning space, keeping the courses small and starting to get ultrasound training back on track.”

In July a one-day Carotid Ultrasound Imaging course (Birmingham) will focus on the application of B-scan and duplex, pulsed wave, colour and power Doppler techniques in the investigation of extracranial and intracranial vasculature.

Vascular Ultrasound Imaging courses take place in July in Birmingham and September in Manchester. These will be intensive two-day courses on the application of duplex, pulsed wave, colour and power Doppler techniques in the investigation of abdominal, extra and intra-cranial and peripheral vasculature. November’s Venous Ultrasound Imaging course in London will focus on ultrasound colour duplex imaging of the deep and superficial venous system.

The faculty includes Dr Colin Deane from King’s College London; Professor Neil Pugh from Cardiff University; Mr Tim Hartshorne from Leicester Royal Infirmary; and Mr Alok Tiwari from Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Canon Medical Systems UK ultrasound product manager Sally Davey said: “We are delighted to be in the process of planning to meet imaging professionals again this year, supporting this education programme with a range of ultrasound systems.”
