Students benefit as doctors converge on Mackay for ultrasound training 

CQUniversity's medical sonography students are set to benefit as a major ultrasound company plans to use facilities at Mackay Campus to train anaesthetists and doctors in the latest ultrasound techniques.

SonoSite Australasia has scheduled ultrasound education workshops in the areas of critical care, emergency medicine and anaesthesia on Saturday June 2.

The company has arranged a special Friday (June 1) session for medical sonography students and is also encouraging them to consider being 'models' for the scanning demonstrations for doctors.

The special Friday session is an intensive hands-on ultrasound scanning workshop where the students will use sonosite ultrasound equipment to scan phantoms (simulated patients) with various pathologies (including abdominal aortic aneurysms), undertake ultrasound-guided interventional procedures, and use their image interpretation skills to diagnose a range of pathologies.
