Free Sonic

In the skills lab, it is possible for students to use ultrasound equipment to practice sonography. The free sonography is mainly used to deepen the knowledge learned in the sonography electives, but is also available outside of the electives. The booking is done via the link "booking sonography equipment" with the university ID and is possible per person for 1.5h/day. Modern ultrasound devices (6 with FKDS function) are available as well as sonic gel and paper towels. For free sonography you have to bring your own towels as a support.

The correct performance of sonography with structured reporting can be learned in our three-part sonography elective course (abdominal sonography (basic and advanced course) and FKDS).
