University of Bristol teaches live ultrasound

Standing are faculty members Dr Amit Parekh, Toshiba Medical Systems ultrasound applications specialist Mair Howe, Dr Nick Ridley, Dr Matt Jaring and Dr Lucy Hilder.  Seated are Dr Noor Ali and Dr Sarah Allsop.

A pilot project jointly run by staff at the Centre for Applied Anatomy and radiology staff from local Bristol NHS trusts,was organised earlier in the academic year to teach abdominal anatomy using live ultrasound scanning.

The sessions were led by medical anatomy team lead at the centre Dr Sarah Allsop and consultant radiologist Dr Nick Ridley, radiology lead for the MBCHB programme at the University of Bristol and Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Swindon.  Ultrasound systems for the project were donated by Toshiba Medical Systems.

It is hoped to continue with the programme in future, embedding the early learning of radiology, particularly ultrasound image interpretation, within second year anatomy teaching into the medical curriculum at the university.
