Event description


EMUG-Vic is back and better than ever! We're proud to present our next fantastic event...

EMUG-Vic Meeting V: "Jelly that Belly!"
Abdominal Ultrasound at the Point of Care

: Thursday 3 August 2017 @6.45pm
Where: Carlton Brewhouse, Cnr Nelson and Thompsons St, Abbotsford

EMUG-Vic is going back to where it all began for emergency point-of-care ultrasound: the abdomen! But there's more to abdominal scanning than our old friend the FAST scan - come along and find out just how much more!

We are excited to introduce a new innovation in EMUGs meetings: the chance for you to bring along your own cases, share your experiences and hear from our experienced clinicians!

From the beginner to the expert, there's something for everybody at our meeting!

But wait, there's more: finger food and a drink are provided, so come and relax with a drink and canapés, enjoy the education and entertainment, and meet some of your fellow ultrasound enthusiasts!

BONUS! Case discussions- NEW to EMUGs!

Had a great save? A puzzling image? An unusual case? We would love you to send us through your images prior to the night using a great open-source web based app called SONO CLIP SHARE. Upload your de-identified images to https://www.sonoclipshare.com/ and share with us through the website via email: emugvic@gmail.com Please include a comment with the case details and your contact details. We can then discuss and share the images with audience on the night.


Dr Fiona Cowan

Fiona is an advanced trainee in emergency medicine whose interest in ultrasound started many years ago while studying biomedical engineering. After completing her fellowship exams last year, she travelled to Botswana to work in their health system and assist in developing their emergency registrars. Fiona will present some interesting cases from her time in Gabarone and offer her perspective on POCUS use in a resource-limited environment.

Dr Gaynor Prince

Gaynor is an Emergency Physician and DDU holder from Perth, with a passion for and a wealth of experience in ultrasound. You may recognise her from her inspirational and educational presentation at Das SMACC Berlin, where she regaled the audience with tales of expedition medicine and performing ultrasounds in Antarctica! She will join us via video link up and discuss some advanced modalities in abdominal ultrasound.

Dr Melody Hiew

A self-confessed ultrasound nerd from Monash Health, Melody is an Emergency Physician, CCPU holder, Diploma of Diagnostic Ultrasound (DDU) candidate, ACEM Ultrasound Subcommittee Member and somewhat reluctant Twitter user (@peppermint_frog). She's also the Victorian Co-Chairperson of EMUG Victoria. She will speak about pitfalls and pearls of abdominal imaging.

This night would not be possible without the generous assistance of our sponsors:
