Ophthalmic Ultrasound – An Alternative Method Using Linear Array
August 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is excited to welcome Dr. Joy Guthrie, Advanced Practice Sonographer, Program Director of the Community Regional Medical Center Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Advanced Cardiac Sonography Programs for an enlightening discussion on ophthalmic sonography.
Have you ever wondered about using ultrasound to image normal structures and pathology inside the eye? Although ophthalmic sonography is not an examination that most Sonographers are commonly asked to perform, it may be requested from time to time, particularly in regional or rural areas. This presentation will demonstrate a method of performing ophthalmic ultrasound using standard linear array transducers, describe normal eye anatomy, and provide sonographic cases demonstrating ophthalmic pathology. (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:
Explain available modes of ophthalmic sonographic imaging
Describe various controls used to optimize the sonographic image
Define the FDA-approved power limits for ophthalmic sonography
State the clinical indications and provide examples of ophthalmic sonographic procedures

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.
