This course is designed to be a "scan and surf" adventure with the education ending at 2 pm each day so participants have time to enjoy the location. With so much to do in Huntington Beach and the hotel offering a Beach Amenities Program, the SEMPA Ultrasound Course is the perfect balance of education and fun!
The course will provide point-of-care ultrasound training to physician assistants working in emergency medicine. Didactic sessions will focus on concise, useful information, images, and video. Most importantly, participants will have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills through hands-on teaching and practice on models under the guidance of experienced faculty and sonographers.

For more information and to register:
I am trying to show the ortho practice that I work for that investing in a good US machine and training me (and a few other PAs) on how to use it to diagnose would be beneficial.
Does anyone know where I could find statistics on the cost effectiveness, accuracy compared to MRI, % of practices that currently use US... etc.
I've been digging into journals for most of my information but they like to see numbers from reputable sources.
