The focus of this course is to learn the detailed anatomy of the heart and coronary arteries, as well as the heart valves. An overview of the physics, basic modes of ultrasound, and how to optimise images are taught. This course will add a breadth of understanding to the use of clinical ultrasound and echocardiography

The course is suitable to take as the first course among the Micro Courses because it includes tutorials with basic but important knowledge. This course will provide you a strong foundation if you wish to take up other courses.
