Different Devices for Intense Transfer of Practice        
A total of 15 ultrasound-devices from well-known manufacturer like Philips, GE and Samsung enabled the students to improve their sonography-skills and made it possible to use the learned knowledge from the theory lessons right away. “It’s important to offer as many different ultrasound-devices as possible – because that’s a situation young doctors will face in practice”, explains Alexander Dutzi, MIDES Director Sales & Service Ultrasound. During the practical lessons MIDES-experts performed on-site assistance to help with adjustments and technical questions.

Quality Devices for Better Image Results
