What you will learn

Course description: 

Advanced System Training (AST) courses are designed to educate customers on the leading edge technologies specific to each system and application. Following your onsite installation training, the intensive AST serves to expand and deepen your knowledge.

EPIQ uses nSight imaging and anatomical intelligence to change the way ultrasound is performed. The AST courses demonstrate how to apply the technology and enhance your workflow using real life examples. This course is intended for sonographers as well as physicians who require additional knowledge and practice of system controls.

This two-day program provides a solid foundation in the principles and clinical applications for general imaging, obstetrics and basic vascular exams on the EPIQ ultrasound system. You may attend one or two days of the course depending on your ultrasound system options.

Day one of this course provides an introduction to image optimization and acquisition on the EPIQ ultrasound system. The course will also cover a variety of advanced features which improve diagnostic confidence and workflow. Educational material will be presented in the form of lectures as well as instructor led hands-on scanning sessions.

Day two of this course provides an introduction to the Volume Imaging applications of the EPIQ ultrasound system. Participants will learn 3D image acquisition, optimization and manipulation on EPIQ through detailed lectures and instructor led hands-on scanning workshops. The course also provides an overview of benefits of the advanced technologies used in Philips ultrasound volume imaging.
