Scan With the Experts

We understand that you may want/need to practice your new skill set more than the regularly scheduled courses allow. You can add an extra day of scanning in addition to this course by calling AHEC and speaking to a faculty member about our “Scan with the Experts” option. Additionally, “Scan with the Experts” sessions can be set up without registering for a regularly scheduled course to enhance your already developed skills. Call AHEC at 1-800-239-1361 for more information.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

The “Golden Hour” is one of the pillars of emergency medicine. Capitalize on the speed and accuracy of ultrasound to take advantage of every minute. Based on the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) criteria learn the skills to perform a Focused Assessment by Sonography in Trauma, commonly referred to as the FAST scan.  Every practitioner who is responsible for evaluating the trauma patient may make the difference between life and death!  Participants in this course will benefit from “hands on scan labs” where you will practice the essential skills and techniques to acquire an ultrasound image for quick and accurate diagnosis.

AHEC has taught for physicians in the US, China, and South America. This one-day course begins with lecture where faculty will review the basics such as: ultrasound physics and instrumentation, anatomy, and procedures and protocols. Following lecture, participants will benefit from our on-site scanning lab with live models for extensive hands-on practice. The course content includes ACEP guidelines to be rapidly deployed without removal from the resuscitation area, providing the time-sensitive skills needed in emergency situations of acute thoracic and abdominal trauma.

This course demonstrates the process to rapidly evaluate the torso for traumatic free fluid or pathologic free air suggesting injury to the peritoneal, pericardial, or pleural cavities.  The areas of concentration include:

The Right Flank

The Pericardial Area

The Left Flank

The Pelvis

Bilateral Anterior Pleural Cavities

Paracolic Gutters


At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

Identify the appropriate equipment settings and transducer selection for different ultrasound applications

Identify and display appropriate normal and abnormal anatomy and orientation in the ultrasound field of view

Understand variations in scanning protocols for demonstration of pathologies in emergency medicine ultrasound examinations.

Successfully perform a trauma FAST exam

Target Audience

Emergency personnel including sonographers, technologists, paramedics, EMTs, nurses, and other healthcare professional working in the front line area of trauma and performing emergency ultrasound examinations.
