Understanding Ultrasounds RSS
This particular article will focus on understanding specialized applications: transcranial doppler, elastography, and stress echo. These applications are very specific and refer to very a precise type of medical diagnosis procedure.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound is using high frequency ultrasound waves to diagnose and examine muscle tissue for sprains, tears and other potential damage. Intraoperative ultrasound application is the employment of ultrasound technology during surgery.
There is no actual application called “Women’s Health”, like there is a “Cardiac” or “Abdominal” application. Rather, the term is used to describe a variety of applications that all fall categorically under this name. These applications include Abdominal, OB-GYN (Obstetrics and Gynecology), Urological, Vaginal and Breast.
Cardiac ultrasound application is used to examine patients’ heart, heart structure, blood flow, and more. Vascular ultrasound applications are used to examine veins, blood flow and arteries in any part of our bodies; arms, legs, heart or throat are just a few parts that can be inspected.
Many times, when trying to figure out how ultrasound applications work and what they mean, we tend to get a little confused. Is abdominal ultrasound under the same catagory as OB-GYN? Does my ultrasound machine need to be able to have a separate option for “Thyroid” application, or does it fall under a different application category? Read this post to find out!
