The Value of a Solid Work Flow

It cannot be overstated how important having a solid, repeatable work flow is to your ability to master the use of ultrasound. Without a set work flow, you will inevitably leave things out that would otherwise have improved your images, and you will inevitably take longer that you would like when performing your exam — which will in turn mean performing fewer exams.

Practice going through the work flow outlined here repeatedly until it becomes second-nature. Think of it as if you were learning to drive a stick-shift car. Initially you will need to think about every step. But pretty soon you’re just driving along, admiring the scenery.
