Point-of-Care Ultrasonography for Intussusception

Pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) physicians are increasingly utilizing point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS). There is currently limited data regarding POCUS evaluation for intussusception in...

Point of Care Ultrasound (US) Versus Detailed Radiology US for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Deep vein thrombosis is a common problem in the intensive care unit and diagnosis is often delayed due to limited availability of a formal duplex ultrasound. Physician performed 2 point c...

Point of Care Ultrasonography

This is a Prospective, Double-center, randomized clinical trial. The purpose of the trial is to evaluate the benefit of adding POC US to the management of inpatients admitted to the intern...

Impact of Immediate Point-of-Care Ultrasound on Patients With Cardiopulmonary Symptoms in the Emergency Department

The purpose of the proposed research is to examine whether incorporating point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) early in diagnostic work-up of cardiopulmonary complaints will affect diagnosis, t...

Ultrasound to Verify Lung-isolation During Single-lung Ventilation

The purpose of the current study is to prospectively evaluate the usefulness of thoracic ultrasonography in demonstrating effective lung isolation during single-lung ventilation (SLV) in t...

Point-of-care ultrasonography in Brazilian intensive care units: a national survey.

Point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) has recently become a useful tool that intensivists are incorporating into clinical practice. However, the incorporation of ultrasonography in critical care in de...

Self-learning of point-of-care cardiac ultrasound - Can medical students teach themselves?

Point-of-care ultrasonography (PoCUS) is a rapidly evolving discipline that aims to train non-cardiologists, non-radiologists clinicians in performing bedside ultrasound to guide clinical decision. Tr...

Heterogeneous Knee Effusions on Point-of-Care Ultrasound in a Toddler Diagnosed With Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

Point-of-care musculoskeletal ultrasound can provide information about joint effusions and the quality of the effusion. This case report describes the findings of a previously healthy pediatric patien...

A Case of Intracardiac Invasion of Hepatoblastoma Diagnosed With Point-of-Care Ultrasound.

Ultrasonography can be useful in the evaluation of children with abdominal complaints and may be the initial imaging modality in patients presenting with a newly recognized abdominal mass. Hepatoblast...

Pediatric Lung Abscess: Immediate Diagnosis by Point-of-Care Ultrasound.

The diagnosis of lung abscess can be difficult to make and often requires imaging beyond plain chest x-ray. The decision to further image with computed tomography should be weighed against the risks o...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with frequency-shifted ultrasound reflections produced by moving targets (usually red blood cells) in the bloodstream along the ultrasound axis in direct proportion to the velocity of movement of the targets, to determine both direction and velocity of blood flow. (Stedman, 25th ed)

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with velocity detection combined with range discrimination. Short bursts of ultrasound are transmitted at regular intervals and the echoes are demodulated as they return.

Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
