Learn more about the eFAST - Online Course


On completion of this online ultrasound program, learners will be able to:

  • Use ultrasound system controls to optimise imaging for accurate diagnosis
  • Develop proficiency in probe manipulation to efficiently acquire diagnostic images
  • Describe the limitations and clinical integration of the eFAST ultrasound examination
  • Apply the eFAST protocol to conduct a systematic ultrasound assessment of a trauma patient

PLUS - included in this module is our Getting Started in Ultrasound program

This online module is perfect for getting started. Through a combination of focused video explanations and guided interactive activities you will be able to:
  • Navigate your way around your system and its primary functions
  • Set up for an ultrasound exam
  • Choose the appropriate imaging mode - B-mode, M-mode, colour Doppler, power Doppler, spectral Doppler
  • Optimise your image
  • Make accurate measurements
  • Archive your images
You’ll also learn the fundamental and often neglected building blocks of successful imaging:
  • How you can find the right window to get the best view of the anatomy
  • What actions you can take to purposefully get the best image that you can
  • How to scan safely
  • How to look after your machine
