Ultrasound used to diagnose minor bone fractures

Ultrasound_MSK

Ultrasound is set to play a significant role in detecting minor fractures in the future, according to a new study. The move would reduce exposure to radiation, as well as providing an alternative when radiology units are closed.

rib-fracture-2aThe authors conducted a study of the usefulness and efficiency of portable ultrasound in detecting the presence of minor fractures in patients presenting to a minor injuries unit. Analysis showed that 85% of patients with a fracture confirmed by X-ray had injuries detected through ultrasonography. The authors say emergency clinicians could rule in fractures by studying the ultrasound images …

Word of the Day – Doppler Shift

Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute - Word of the Day

Doppler Shift

Doppler Shift – a frequency change in the sound wave due to the relative motion between the sound source and the receiver. positive shifts indicate the source and receiver are moving towards each other, while negative shifts indicate the source and receiver are moving away from each other

To learn more about Doppler Shift, and how to identify it during your evaluations, check out upcoming hands-on training course that will provide hours of hands-on scanning.
