and with the Skeletal Radiology (actually counselor until 2008) and Sports Medicine sections.

Ultrasound School benefits from the experience and know how
that Monetti has gained in more than 20 years of dedicated work
in the field. In his curriculum, among the other achievements:
Official Ultrasound specialist for the Soccer World Cup in Italy
The main goal of the school is training the doctors who attend
it to their best, focusing on subjects that range from basic
knowledge to the most recent topics concerning anatomy, physiology,
biomechanics, and musculoskeletal apparatus pathology.
All the courses include lessons on theory, practical training
with ultrasound equipment and debates based on videotape case
Moreover, thanks to the introduction in the clinics of a sophisticated
system of telemedicine of Ebit Sanità, the trainee can
connect to the system and share opinions, or search for advice
in real time.
The School site has been specifically designed to offer a chance
for dialogue and debate to the fellow doctors, and all the relevant
news concerning the school itself and the meetings organized
during the year. Moreover there will be a regular exchange between
Monetti and the fellow Doctors Antonio Bouffard and Marnix Van
Holsbeeck, who run the Imaging Diagnostic Department at the
Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.
