Adventures in Medicine: Ultrasound

Journey into the body in real time to watch the heartbeat! Using a handheld ultrasound probe and an ultrasound unit the size of a laptop, you will learn to scan the body in the same labs and with the same doctors as our medical students at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine.

Ultrasound allows physicians to determine what is going on inside the body in a non-invasive way. Using sound waves, it gives images of the inner workings of the body so that emergency room docs can make quick, lifesaving decisions and Orthopedists can decide where the proper injection in the joint should be.

Practice on our real-life simulator and on real patients! You will be certain to learn some anatomy and physiology along the way. Welcome to the technology of the future, the stethoscope of the future, ultrasound.
