Learning Labs

You have 8 opportunities to register and attend interactive Hands-on Learning Labs throughout UltraCon! In each of the 90-minute sessions, you can learn about and practice a variety of imaging and/or interventional protocols across several ultrasound specialties. Each Learning Lab offers you the opportunity for hands-on scanning blended with didactic lectures. We generally have a 4:1 ratio at the scanning stations. Seven of the labs include CME credit. 

Add a Learning Lab as you register for UltraCon 2024.

If you wish to add a learning lab to your existing registration, please contact the AIUM office during the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm ET, Monday through Friday at 301-498-4100. Press zero, and we will gladly assist you with the process.
