B&K US course @ ACPGBI, 3rd July 10.00 - 13.00, (£65.00), Purbeck Lounge, Bournemouth 2017
Once again BK Medical will be supporting a training course on Endo-Anal ultrasound with a faculty from St Thomas’ Hospital, London. This will include formal lectures followed by ‘hand on’ assessment of 3D data cubes on BK Consoles.
Date: Tuesday, 3rd July 2017 Time: 10am - 1pm.
Venue: Purbeck Lounge, Bournemouth Conference Centre.
No of places: 35 Coffee and ‘snacks’ will be served (at 9.30am) prior to the meeting, at the mid-course break and a buffet lunch will be provided at the completion of the course.
In the past this course has been provided free of charge, but this has often seen delegates who booked the course failing to attend. This in turn leads to people who could have attended not being able to, as places were (apparently) not available. To try to overcome this BK Medical has decided to make a modest charge of £65 to cover the costs of running the course; with any monies in excess of the actual costs being donated to charity/a research fund. This is a very modest cost when compared to most similar training courses.
You will need to register and pay to attend the conference on Monday, 1 July in order to reserve a place on the Endo-Anal Ultrasound Course. Once you have reserved your place, the administration team at the ACPGBI will pass on your email details to BK Medical, so that we can contact you with regards to making the payment to secure your place on this course
We look forward to welcoming you to this course.
3D Ultrasound in Gynecology 08-10 June & 16-18 November 2017, Nottingham
The course has been running for four years and comes highly recommended. The course aims to be intellectually stimulating and rewarding for each and every one of you regardless of your expertise and knowledge. The course has been designed specifically for those of you who practice gynaecological ultrasound and want to learn more about advanced scanning techniques particularly 3D and Doppler ultrasound but is also suitable for beginners. The aims of the course, which has distinct practical and clinical components, include Establishing the basic principles of gynaecological ultrasound & getting the best out of your machine through hands-on practical sessions:4D View: basic and advanced applications
Clinical cases and worked examples.
A large proportion of the course involves working with 4D View. Each delegate will be given USB or CD which contains a series of 3D datasets that we will look through together as a group during the hands-on practical sessions to provide working examples of the topics discussed. We will help you become more confident with the software, master the different display options and perform reliable measurements of volume and vascularity. You can assess your progress in an informal fun quiz on the final day!
The course is held at the Park Plaza Hotel, a modern, four-star hotel in the heart of the city within walking distance of the main shopping and business districts. The course dinner is held on the Friday leaving Thursday evening free for you to do as you please. Please note that whilst we can offer advice and help with arranging your transport to and from the venue and accommodation during the course these are no longer covered in the course fee £ 795.00 and will be added to your invoice.
