Advanced Echo
Purpose: Test the hands on psychomotor skill of image acquisition ONLY.

How to Administer:
1. Instructions to be read aloud to the trainee are in CAPS. Regular text is for Instructors.
2. Start by informing the trainee that:
a. This test is a Zero Stress Assessment of their current skills so we can teach them better.
b. They will have one minute to acquire the view and press freeze.
c. Then they will need to point out the structures requested on the screen.
d. They can simple say "No" to indicate that they have no idea how to acquire a view requested. But this should be extremely rare - encourage even the nervous trainee to give it a try.
e. If time allows, then the trainee can label the image and save for QA.
3. For all views, frozen image obtained must be at least of "just adequate quality" (Depth, Gain, Structure) to make a clinical decision. When in doubt, be a little tough.
