PROGRAM RESOURCES:

Our “fleet” includes 6 Philips Sparqs, Zonare, 2 GE Vscans, Sonosite MicroMaxx, BK Medical Hawk XDI and a Sonosite 180 plus (used in the simulation center).
On all machines, our probes include: Phased array, Large footprint curvilinear, Small footprint curvilinear, Broadband linear, Endocavitary 

All our images are captured on each individual machine’s hard drive and transmitted wirelessly via DICOM to Qpath for easy accessibility, review, and organization. We capture images as real-time short clips. Occasionally we record still images, but we do not use thermal printing since everything we have is electronic.

FAVORITE COURSE SO FAR:

The Caribbean Course!
