Whist Basic TTE remains the most popular use of ultrasound and the greatest demand for learning, there is increasing interest in expanding the uses of ultrasound beyond the heart. This includes lungs, vessels, gastric US, and use of ultrasound in peri-arrest or arrest situations.

Collectively the cardiac and non-cardiac uses of basic ultrasound can be called Peri-operative ultrasound

The Perioperative Ultrasound course has been designed to provide a good understanding of these areas.
