Recently, West Coast Ultrasound Institute, in partnership with CompuMed, Inc., rolled out a unique short course focused on basic echocardiography training for organ transplant coordinators. These transplant coordinators work with Organ Procurement Organizations from around the country to identify viable donor organs that meet strict clinical and time-sensitive criteria. Thus, training in echosonography allows coordinators to perform more efficient and in-depth clinical evaluations of potential donors, and leads to the recovery of more hearts and other organs. The Louisiana Organ Procurement Organization is the first OPO to take advantage of the course offering at WCUI's Beverly Hills campus, and has recently come forward to attest to the benefits and increase in saved lives that have resulted from sending its organ transplant coordinators through the specialized training.
