Why should you follow this online course?
The ultrasound report is the document containing the official interpretation of a single ultrasound examination or procedure. Whilst the ultrasound report must be accurate in content, it must be written in a style that is concise and pertinent, conveying the correct message to the referrer. What the referrer concludes from a report has been shown to have important consequences in malpractice cases and the importance of the ultrasound report as a medico-legal document should not be overlooked. A great variety in the style, structure, and effectiveness of ultrasound reports exists. The clinical importance of a report can be lost if the report lacks structure and is incoherent, rambling, and verbose. Although the ultrasound report is a fundamental component of the way we function as clinicians, reporting radiographers and sonographers receive little, if any, formal training in reporting technique and style. This SonoClass aims to emphasize the importance of the ultrasound report and provide suggestions on style and content as well as pitfalls to avoid.

After completion you'll receive a digital SonoSkills Certificate of Attendance and proof of your CME points.
