Internship

Practice | 3 days | 100 patients

Overview

A regular flow of patients is necessary for the specialist to notice and diagnose ultrasonographically atypical or less frequent changes. Intensive practice and a variety of clinical cases provide much more opportunities to acquire specific knowledge and skills necessary in ultrasound diagnostics. When a specialist lacks this practice, the quality of diagnostics suffers, and the probability of possible errors increases significantly. 

This intensive 3-day internship is explicitly designed for all specialists who want to maximize their skills over a long time by diagnosing pathologies with ultrasound. When evaluating clinical cases of different complexity, participants will learn the basics of correct diagnosis and have the opportunity to learn more about the subtleties of this imaging.

Not the years of ultrasound scanning illustrate a specialist’s experience but the examined number of patients with the feedback.

aims

The aims of the internship are to:

  • provide practical ultrasound examination opportunities for every MSK ultrasound specialist;
  • increase confidence in scanning and recognizing the MSK US pathology;
  • discuss the radiological strategy of report writing; 
  • encourage professional continuing education.

suitability

The internship is intended for specialists already familiar with the basics of ultrasound examination and who want to learn how to identify pathology. More experienced specialists can also learn how to apply ultrasound protocols and recognize ultrasound pathology more optimally.

Ultrasound examination

The ultrasound examination takes an average of 10 minutes. Depending on the pathology, the study may last 5 to 20 minutes. Clinical cases will be discussed during or after the examination. 
Scanning the patient with permission and supervision will be achievable in pathology cases. There are possibilities to save and bring home the images with discovered pathology.

Patients

Patients can arrive with random MSK pathologies and the age can be from 2 weeks up to 99 years old. Up to 5 percent of patients may need MSK-unrelated examinations, such as carotid artery scans. The number of patients can be variable. 
Ultrasound center cannot take responsibility for patients because they may not come to an ultrasound examination for various reasons or disagree with being evaluated by internship participants.

Kaunas is the second largest city in Lithuania, where visiting objects can be a relatively long distance from each other. If you stay in the Old Town and all activities are planned in this area, it will be most convenient to move on foot, if the distance is higher – we recommend using transport: Taxi or short-term rental services.

We recommend using the Bolt app, which provides transportation services in all the largest cities of Lithuania. Bolt allows you to choose a taxi comfort level, arrives quickly and on time, and, most importantly, always indicates a fair price. You can pay for the services with both card and cash.

Short-term rental is highly convenient when a car is needed during the entire stay or if you plan to travel further.

We recommend renting a car you like through the CityBee or Bolt apps. Convenient Order and Payment (Payment Card according to the rental time and distance), large car park, ability to pick up the car and leave you in a convenient place.
