Certification Standards and Diagnostic Accuracy for Surgeon-performed Ultrasonography

2016-05-20 11:23:22 | BioPortfolio


Ultrasonography (US) is an operator depended image modality that is difficult to reproduce and interpret by others. Competence of the US operator is crucial for reliable diagnostics but no evidence-based certification of head and neck US skills has been developed. Investigators conducted an experimental study aimed to explore diagnostic accuracy and establish validity evidence for certification standards in surgeon-performed ultrasonography.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Measurement of relative composition of different BREAST tissue types often determined from MAMMOGRAPHY; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; or MRI.

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image. This type of ultrasonography is well-suited to identifying the location of high-velocity flow (such as in a stenosis) or of mapping the extent of flow in a certain region.

A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

Training of the mentally or physically disabled in work skills so they may be returned to regular employment utilizing these skills.

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
