ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is excited to welcome Frederick W. Kremkau, PhD, FACR, FAIMBE, FAIUM, FASA, author of Sonography Principles and Instruments, for an enlightening session on sonographic artifacts.
The generation of a sonographic image depends on several assumptions. If any of these is violated, an incorrect representation of structure or function (motion or flow) results. It is important for sonographers and physicians to recognize these incorrect representations, which are termed artifacts, and to know how to determine if a questionable appearance is a correct representation of structure or function, or is it an artifact. This presentation demonstrates several artifacts and discusses how to manage them. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit, provided one is present for the entire event.)
Course Objectives:Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
List reasons for incorrect presentations of anatomic structures on sonographic images.
List reasons for incorrect presentations of motion or flow on spectral and color-Doppler displays.
Describe how specific artifacts can be recognized.
Explain how to avoid the pitfalls and misdiagnoses artifacts can cause.

Important update from the SDMS:
SDMS no longer allows its CME providers to issue Partial Credit for attendance. If you join late or leave early, the SDMS will no longer permit us to award partial pro-rated credit.
Therefore, from now on, in order to receive CME credit, you must be in attendance for the ENTIRE event via your own unique Zoom link that Zoom emailed to you when you registered. Then, and only then, will USC be able to award you any credit. So, please be prompt and attentive to the time schedule. We apologize for any inconvenience, but again, this is a new SDMS policy we must abide by. Thank you for understanding.
