In-person attendees have the option of tailoring their meeting experience to their personal needs through additional workshops. These workshops are available to physicians only and require additional fees. Workshops typically fill very quickly, so do not delay registering for those you wish to attend.
Choose from 3 types of workshops: interactive demonstration, hands-on, and mini.
- Interactive demonstration workshops are 90 minutes long and consist of a short introduction followed by demonstrations.
- Hands-on workshops are 90 minutes long and provide the opportunity to practice hands-on scanning using live models or phantoms.
- Mini workshops will focus in on a specific topic with a limit of 4 attendees only.
- Workshop attendees (learners, faculty, and models) will double mask for added safety.
- All typical safety measures will be used (gloving, 6' spacing when not actively learning or demonstrating).
- Individual interaction between model and physician will not exceed 15 minutes cumulative within any day.
- Plexiglass shields (like the one shown) will be used to provide an additional barrier between model and physician. The shields used will have any non-used holes covered.
