With ever increasing use of imaging as a diagnostic tool in medicine, medical schools are being urged to further integrate imaging into their curricula. Ultrasound is one such way of doing so-enabling students to bridge the gap between form and function, medical school and clinical practice. As a non-invasive imaging technique, with low risk when compared to other methods of imaging, ultrasound is ideal for integration into basic science and clinical teaching. The twelve tips given in this article offer advice on the practicalities of running a successful ultrasound imaging session in an appropriate environment, promoting safety and curriculum integration.
