All of our ultrasound continuing medical education (CME) courses are intended to provide relevant, practicable clinical content that is directly related to radiologic technologists’ daily professional practice. We believe that radiologic technologists deserve better, more engaging continuing education experiences they can apply to their work in order to improve the quality of patient care, enhance their practice, and advance their careers—all while earning all the ultrasound CME credits they need to renew their ARRT® and state certifications, of course. So, to ensure that we meet these goals, we have designed all of our courses in an easy-to-follow, interactive format, using animations and visuals to break down complex concepts into easily understandable chunks.
Below you will find overviews of each of our online ultrasound CME courses. Check out the individual course pages for more information about course objectives, topics covered, and CQR distributions. If you require ARDMS®-accepted ultrasound CME, please be sure to check the individual course pages carefully for the ARDMS® acceptance information.
Ultrasound Physics is a 1 ultrasound CME credit course accepted by the ARDMS® and for ARRT® certification. This course reviews the fundamentals of ultrasound physics, image formation, and resolution. It also provides an overview of ultrasound machine functions and manipulation, different modes, and ultrasound imaging artifacts. In addition, this course introduces and explains the Doppler effect, ultrasonic velocimetry, and the physical principles and advantages of harmonic imaging, using clinical cases as examples to enhance understanding.
Our Mastering Breast Ultrasound course is approved for 7 ultrasound CME credits and accepted for ARRT® license renewal. Intended for radiologists and sonographers, this course addresses the increasingly important role of ultrasound in the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer and reviews core competencies required for conducting an ultrasound-guided breast biopsy.
*New!* Our Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound course addresses the clinical applications of ultrasound contrast, and the guidelines and standards for its use, highlighting different warnings and precautions for contrast agent administration in ultrasound examinations. Completing this course will earn you 2 ultrasound CME credits, and is guaranteed to be accepted for ARRT® certification.
*New!* Ultrasonography of the Liver is an ultrasound CME course accepted by the ARDMS®. An introductory course, it covers different ultrasound imaging modes and the advantages of ultrasound over CT and MRI. It focuses on liver anatomy and diseases and the different modes and techniques for liver imaging and diagnosis, with a special focus on contrast-enhanced ultrasound, endoscopic ultrasonography and elastography. This course also addresses challenges sonographers may face and considerations for optimal image acquisition. This course is approved by the ASRT for 2 ultrasound CME credits.
