    Soliciting your input. Thanks in advance.

    We have a device (ultrasound) being used in both classroom and clinical settings.  Sometimes medical students and residents will use the device on them to practice usage, but then a condition is discovered.  Is this considered educational or diagnostic?  Can the "practice patient" schedule a specialist using the practice images?  Do you bill the "service"?  How is it handled in your facility?
