This is the second year we have celebrated Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month.
Again, sonographers provided a range of fascinating and informative articles about the invaluable contribution ultrasound makes to diagnosis and treatment.
Topics ranged from an ergonomics checklist for practitioners, to e-learning and CPD, as well as ultrasound guided radiotherapy, direct entry education, FASP screening scans, from helper to aspiring consultant practitioner, and top tips for lifelong leadership, to name a few.
We even had a Halloween poem!
As always, we are extremely grateful to the authors for providing high quality and fascinating content.
The full list and links to the articles are below. Be informed and enjoy.
