Pediatric ultrasound is different to adult ultrasound in all respects. The equipment chosen for pediatric work has different requirements, the technique of scanning is different, the normal anatomy changes throughout childhood and the pathology encountered in childhood are unique to children. This book addresses the 'how', 'why' and 'when' of pediatric ultrasound. Each chapter begins with the 'how': how to scan and what special techniques or tricks to use when scanning children. The 'why' and 'when' discuss the pathology and use of other imaging modalities - an essential skill in pediatric radiology where the limitation of both radiation exposure and number of examinations is of paramount importance.

Accessible, step-by-step approach

Covers the practical aspects of scanning, as well as the role, value and limitations of ultrasound in diagnosing different diseases

Written at a level suitable for both students and practitioners

Introducing the first definitive training guide to point-of-care ultrasound

Whether you're a medical student or other health professional, this complete, one-stop tutorial takes you through everything you need to know about ultrasound scanners and their use across the full range of medical settings. Here, you'll get an incisive, step-by-step overview of the physical principles of ultrasound with detailed explanations of how each control works and why it's needed.

Point-of-Care Ultrasound Fundamentals is the one clinical resource that will take your familiarity with portable ultrasound to the next level. No other sourcebook goes further to help you master ultrasound tools and techniques--so you can maximize the quality of diagnostic information obtained during the examination while ensuring patient safety and observing ergonomically-sound scanning techniques.

FEATURES:

Covers the rapid adoption of new point-of-care ultrasound devices, from simple cell phone-size units to highly sophisticated and costly multi-transducer scanners offering 2D real-time, Duplex Doppler, and color flow imaging Emphasis on ensuring ultrasound safety offers insight into ultrasound interactions with tissue and the amount of energy transmitted to the patient, particularly when scanning the fetus Detailed descriptions of universal scanning techniques include diagrams and photographs illustrating correct and incorrect scanning methods to help prevent sonographer injury Excellent pedagogy includes chapter-opening learning objectives and key terms Numerous tables and figures throughout include precisely reproduced ultrasound images
Using a flip-card format, this compact guide provides protocols that take the guesswork out of image documentation. These comprehensive protocols follow the imaging guidelines of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) and include a universal method for documenting any type of pathology. Examples of the required images for the physician's diagnostic interpretation are included. Documentation specifics are provided for full and limited abdominal studies, gynecological and obstetric exams, and prostate evaluations. Also provided are protocols for small parts, vascular system, and echocardiography.Flip-card format with spiral binding allows the book to sit upright close to the console, so sonographer can easily flip pages while scanning to be sure that correct protocols are followed.Step-by-step instructions describe criteria for each ultrasound study, then provide examples of each scan that should be obtained to complete the study.Protocols follow guidelines provided by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), the organization that sets sonography policies, practice standards, safety procedures, and performance guidelines.Detailed line drawings accompany most sonograms, clarifying the structures shown on the diagnostic image.Over 1,200 images and drawings are provided, including images with accompanying drawings for every AIUM-approved protocol — offering a visual step-by-step scanning approach to the performance of scans and image documentation for physician diagnostic interpretation.New images are added to complete the scanning protocols approved by the AIUM.
