Ultrasound Teaching Manual

Ultrasound Teaching Manual

This workbook offers structured, course-like learning, and just like an instructor in an ultrasound course, it guides you systematically through the individual organ systems. The accompanying videos demonstrate basic anatomy for ultrasound, optimum transducer positioning, and the interaction between transducer position and monitor display, allowing you to experience the learning points in real time for […]

Abdominal and Pericardial Ultrasound in Suspected Extrapulmonary Or Disseminated Tuberculosis (Original Articles) (Report)

Abdominal and Pericardial Ultrasound in Suspected Extrapulmonary Or Disseminated Tuberculosis (Original Articles) (Report)

Extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) is defined as tuberculosis (TB) of organs other than the lungs and usually results from lympho-haematogenous dissemination of the organism. The term disseminated TB refers to TB that involves multiple body systems, including the lungs. Target areas are usually those with high vascularity and include the lymph nodes, meninges, spleen, kidneys, spine […]

Usefulness of Endoscopic Ultrasound in Patients at High Risk of Choledocholithiasis (Clinical Report)

Usefulness of Endoscopic Ultrasound in Patients at High Risk of Choledocholithiasis (Clinical Report)

Background: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) has been considered the nonsurgical gold standard for the diagnosis and treatment of choledocholithiasis (CDL). Complications include a 0.1% to 1.3% mortality rate and a 5% to 19% morbidity rate, including a reported 1.8% to 6.7% incidence of postprocedure pancreatitis. Twenty-seven percent to 67% of ERCPs done for suspected choledocholithiasis […]

The Effect of Surgical Office-Based Thyroid Ultrasound on Clinical Decision Making (Clinical Report)

The Effect of Surgical Office-Based Thyroid Ultrasound on Clinical Decision Making (Clinical Report)

An important diagnostic tool for the evaluation of thyroid disease, thyroid ultrasound has recently become available for use in surgical offices. The purpose of this report is to determine the lesional sensitivity of office-based thyroid ultrasound and its impact on clinical decision making. Surgical office-based thyroid ultrasound was performed on 49 consecutive patients who presented […]

The New Face of Ultrasound Imaging: A Gift by Nanotechnology

The New Face of Ultrasound Imaging: A Gift by Nanotechnology

INTRODUCTION Ultrasound imaging involves the use of high frequency ultrasound beams to non-invasively visualize the inner structures of human body. Thus, gross findings of a pathology that is merely suspected on clinical examination or confirmed after appropriate laboratory investigations can further be validated by directly visualizing it in vivo with the help of ultrasound. Often […]
