E-Learning for Healthcare : Ultrasound

The popular Image Interpretation e-learning educational resource has been renamed. It is now listed as Clinical Imaging. Within Clinical Imaging, there are approximately 50 educational sessions dedicated to Ultrasound topics written by expert subject specialists including sonographers, radiologists, vascular scientists, midwives, physicists, and emergency medicine consultants.

Module sub-headings include Abdominal, Gynaecological, Men’s Health, Vascular, Musculoskeletal and Head and Neck.

Photographs, diagrams, still images and clips are used to support and enhance learning. Test questions and activities throughout each session enable learners to check their understanding and meet learning objectives. Tips on scan technique and opportunities to optimise report writing are offered. In addition to focusing on the interpretation of clinical ultrasound images, these sessions provide useful supplementary information on the value of other imaging modalities and on patient management pathways in common conditions.

Hazel Edwards, Clinical Imaging Ultrasound Lead and Module Editor says :

This e-learning resource has been available to all NHS employees and many healthcare students since 2012 and has since undergone two updates; in 2017 and 2023.  All ultrasound e-learning sessions were revised and amended to reflect current best practice and national recommendations. Many new images were also uploaded. This invaluable and versatile resource may be used for CPD by qualified staff, as additional material for students and specialist trainees, or as a refresher for returning practitioners. Furthermore, staff who may be thinking of extending their practice to include new areas of focused or general ultrasound may find these sessions offer a useful introduction.’
