Dust Off Your Ultrasound Machine: The Nonradiologist's Guide to Ultrasound in General Practice

Nov 08, 2019
Clinician’s Brief Clinical Theater 2
Diagnostic Imaging

Radiographs are very good at determining the difference between bone and gas, but soft tissue and fluid are the same opacity. When dealing with intra-abdominal lesions, the main goal is to differentiate one soft tissue mass from a normal soft tissue structure from abdominal fluid. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to accomplish what radiographs cannot. With ultrasound, fluid and soft tissue can be clearly distinguished from one another, where bone and gas cannot. The purpose of this proceeding is to describe the benefits and uses of abdominal ultrasound to the general practitioner.

  • 1. To learn when ultrasound can aid in diagnosing abdominal disease
  • 2. To recognize case examples of common ultrasound abnormalities
  • 3. To be comfortable with the use of ultrasound in general practice
