What you will learn

Course description: 

Philips is proud to introduce the ultimate Solution for vascular ultrasound assessment. Integral to this clinical solution is the world’s first xMatrix linear transducer the XL14-3. This transducer opens the door to a host of exciting new  technologies for the vascular ultrasound community including xPlane imaging to increase accuracy and efficiency of your current vascular exams with simultaneous live orthogonal planes in 2D, Color, and Doppler. Not only will this transducer transform your current workflows, it ushers in the vascular assessment of tomorrow. With high quality 3D/4D (live 3D) clinical decision making can be transformed. This two day course is designed to follow up on your onsite installation training, to expand and deepen your knowledge beyond the fundamentals.
You can expect on day 1 to receive in-depth training on operating skills and applications, acquisition and optimization, to ensure that you have the opportunity to explore and harness all the capabilities of the  XL14-3 transducer and how to apply it to current workflows. During day 2, Muhammad Hasan, a preeminent vascular ultrasound expert will explore clinical scenarios/case studies in order to explore beyond the “how to” of these innovative technologies and to expose the clinical value of the XL14-3’s capabilities for improved accuracy, efficiency, and communication.
