One of the UK’s leading ultrasound training centres has taken further orders for Esaote’s super flexible MyLab™25Gold ultrasound platform. 

The Centre for Ultrasound Studies (CUS), a centre of excellence in ultrasound education and training, delivers a number of innovative, high-quality courses for an increasingly diverse range of healthcare professionals.

“Ultrasound is a highly effective and important diagnostic tool being used with increasing frequency across the healthcare setting,” said course director, Dr Budgie Hussain. “We provide teaching courses to everyone from GPs, A&E specialists, nurses, midwives, obstetricians, rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons, and sports medicine specialists.”

CUS’s courses are designed, piloted and developed by a team of highly experienced ultrasound practitioners, with a focus on safe and competent use of diagnostic ultrasound in the assessment of patients presenting with clinical symptoms.

CUS is part of The Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC), an Associate College of Bournemouth University, and enjoys a global reputation as a leader in musculoskeletal healthcare.

Esaote is also supporting CUS internationally as it delivers training abroad.

“We started using Esaote’s machines as early as 2007 and now have eight machines on campus. CUS run courses here in Bournemouth, but we are increasingly going to client sites to train – in hospitals, hotels, and as far away as Malta and Norway. When we are abroad, Esaote provides its services locally to support the kit we require,” explains Dr Hussain.

“Esaote’s machines are reasonably priced and have very high frequency transducers, enabling high clarity of superficial structures such as shoulders and fingers. Their machines offer great portability – whether in clinic or in the back of the car.  They also have a high level of memory to store or share images.  We particularly like the application change-ability, and the ease with which we can switch transducers between patients.”
