Researchers have described the first known demonstration of 3-D cell imaging using picosecond ultrasonics, and show that picosecond ultrasonics can achieve micron resolution of single cells, imaging their interiors in slices separated by 150 nanometers. This work is a proof-of-principle that may open the door to new ways of studying the physical properties of living cells by imaging them in vivo.
Brian Schenker, MBA, RDMS, RVT reminds us that scanning the spleen in the supine position doesn’t have to be difficult.
It is important to assess both the anterior and posterior pelvic cul-de-sacs for the presence of fluid during a gynecological ultrasound. Theresa Jorgensen RDCS, RDMS, RVT points out the relevant anatomy as well as an example of normal physiologic free fluid found in an asymptomatic female.
