Word of the Day – Ultrasound-Guided Vascular Access: In-Plane Approach

Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute - Word of the Day

Ultrasound-Guided Vascular Access: In-Plane Approach

va-in-planeThe in-plane or long access approach is the technique used to allow visualization of the entire needle when performing ultrasound-guided vascular access.
The transducer is positioned in a long axis over the selected vein.  The vessel is visualized straight across the screen.  The needle is placed at the center of the transducer in-line with the ultrasound beam and the trajectory of the vessel with the bevel up.

The transducer is held stationary with the non-dominant hand while advancing the needle using the dominant hand.

Increases in speed and reliability of internet communication has spawned a variety of opportunities to bring vital medical technologies to remote areas of the world and beyond.  These advances in communication have made it possible to bring medical ultrasound technologies to such remote areas as the South Pole research station and even to outer space.  Virtually assisted ultrasound can give sonographers the ability to assist medical providers in remote areas with critical diagnostics.  Below are some links to more information on remote and robotic ultrasound projects.
