Word of the Day – Anisotropy

Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute - Word of the Day

Anisotropy

AnisotropyAnistropy is a common artifact seen in musculoskeletal ultrasound that occurs when the ultrasound beam encounters a structure at a non-perpendicular angle. The artifact results with a loss of echogenicity in structure. We see anisotropy more commonly in tendons and ligaments, but it also occurs in muscle and nerves to a lesser extent.
To learn more about Anisotropy, and how to identify it during your evaluations, check out upcoming emergency hands-on training course that will provide hours of hands-on scanning.

Word of the Day – Cerebrovascular Accident

Word of the Day

Cerebrovascular Accident

Cerebrovascular accident – Also called cerebral vascular accident, apoplexy, or stroke. Blood supply to some part of the brain is slowed or stopped, resulting in injury to brain tissue.
