Transvaginal Scanning Techniques (TVUS) have been designed to extend and consolidate the sonographic skills necessary to confidently perform transvaginal scanning techniques.
Whether you are a practicing obstetrician looking to refine your technique, a GP looking to learn the finer points, or a registrar preparing for your IHCA as part of the requirements of the new RANZCOG curriculum, this flexible one-day course will provide you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to perform basic transvaginal assessment of the pelvis.
As part of a suite of courses designed specifically for obstetric skills development - Core Obstetric Ultrasound for Registrars, 1st Trimester Obstetric Ultrasound, Foetal Biometry Ultrasound and Foetal Well-Being Ultrasound - as well as our Comprehensive Obstetric Ultrasound course, you can pick-and-mix a learning pathway that will provide you with the skills fundamental to successful utilisation of ultrasound in the obstetric and gynaecological setting.
Using real vaginal patient models, and applying the latest in adult learning theory, you will leave this course confident and ready for the clinical environment.
The one day course is overseen by Suean Pascoe, Director.
At the conclusion of this course you will be able to:
Modify ultrasound system controls to attain basic practical proficiency in image optimisation, including transducer selection, focus, depth correction, TGC curve, gain settings
Utilise the calculations package to record a variety of uterine and ovarian measurements
Demonstrate basic practical proficiency in performing transvaginal ultrasound
Demonstrate a systematic approach to gaining consent for performing a transvaginal ultrasound examination
Discuss the clinical role, practical applications and limitations of transvaginal ultrasound assessment
