Educational Programming Opportunities

The Advanced Courses in Ultrasonography (Imaging Diagnostic) are planned in order to supply the constant demand of qualified professionals in the field of Ultrasonography (Imaging Diagnostic).

Due to the increasing degree of US complexity as a consequence of the fast development of new equipment and of advanced techniques, the importance of full and constant specialization of the physicians with perspectives of broadening the imaging diagnostic investigation limits has been brought about. Thus the contents of the courses are designed to comprise all technical particularities and innovations in all US specialized areas.

  • US Fetal Morphology - Dr. Ayrton Pastore and Dr. Sérgio Kobayashi
