to the Australian Institute of UltrasouND
1995 the Australian Institute of Ultrasound has provided continuing education
programs for sonographers and many types of specialist doctors such as Radiologists,
Emergency Medicine Physicians, Rural GPs and Cardiologists.
Our volunteers provide a vital
role in this "hands-on" tuition. There is no substitute for learning
on "real" people, so, by acting as models they help these medical
folk to reach the highest standard of care for the community.
What type of people do we need?
Every type from young to old
- the students scan every type in real-life too, so we need to simulate that.
What do we scan?
Most parts of the body from
gall bladders & livers through arteries, veins, uterus,prostate and all
stages of pregnancy. We also have courses for muscle & joint scanning.
How long does it take?
Appointments are a maximum
of 1 hour
How many students will there
be scanning me?
Usually 2 or 3 - almost never
more than that and there are highly experienced tutors on hand at all times
Is this like a real scan?
NO - we DO NOT give out reports,
but if we find anything unusual that you don't know about we will tell you
and notify your doctor if you want us to.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes, your partner or friend
is welcome to come along
