“This course definitely improved my confidence with ultrasound/evaluation skills.”
“Very thorough course and better than I expected. I would definitely recommend this course to others and I would even take it again.”
“Skills practice has solidified memory and application, identification of internal structures and organs, and normal and most common abnormal findings.”
