The largest known ultrasound course ever held took place this past weekend in Baltimore, MD. The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) program called Ultrasonography: Fundamentals in Critical Care Ultrasound drew over 200 participants with 35 faculty. Despite its large size, through the use parallel image interpretation workshops at the same time as the practical scanning sessions, participants were afforded a 3:1 ratio of attendees to instructors.
Sinai’s own ultrasound fellow, Dr. Robert Arntfield served as faculty at this course. Dr. Arntfield is dually board certified in critical care and emergency medicine and has particular interest in critical care ultrasound.
