I am hoping to shadow a sonographer at work in preparation for my application to a medical sonography program. I live in Durham, NC, but would be more than willing to travel to any location in or near the Triangle.
Do you have any local connections to HR…Continue

I am aware that repaired probes could suffer from poor performance in the elevation plane, even though the probe passes the uniformity test. Elevational side lobes reduce the contrast in the image. I do not know how widespread is the use of such probes. Has anyone made a study looking across probes in the same department where many of the same type of probe are in use? If so, have you noticed any difference in the contrast?
Probe repairers may be unaware of such…

A colleague asked whether you need to follow a Bosniak II lesion, single thin septation, diagnosed by US, no other imaging studies.
Do most people follow the lesion for 2 yrs, do nothing ( no further work up needed), or do a confirmatory contrast MR or CT and if Bosniak II confirmed, do nothing ( no further work up needed)? Rumack 2005 pg 367 states that thin septated cysts should be followed. On pg 368 states that the lesion can be classified as benign.

Has anyone scanned a patient with Kleebattschadel Syndrome? I had actually never heard of it, but started researching what my images looked like...thought at first it was encephalocele or holoprosencephaly. The head was very hard to distinguish. But it did look like mostly mass effect with a little bit of skull. Could not identify parts of the head or face except for 1 orbit. It was at a 13 week exam. Both feet were…Continue

I was happy to be a part of the AIUM speakers. I gave a 45 minutes lecture on Eaarly fetal echocardiography including the following titles -
Why, how, when and to whom early fetal echo?
Early fetal abnormalities - 2&3D sonographic evaluation
Heart abnormalities and chromosomal defects (including isolated vascular aberrations)
Increased NT- it scan or to karyotype?
I hope those who were at the pre-congress course enjoyed it

When performing a 76820 (umblical artery doppler), 76821 (MCA doppler) and 76828 (fetal cardiac doppler) on the same day, we are getting multiple denials for payment. Does anyone have any billing tips?

My facility is researching fetal echo reporting programs. Does anyone have strong opinions on any of the reports. We are considering GE vision because we use GEultrasound machines.

I am a general practitioner in north sweden in a rural area. Together with some other collegues in sweden we are trying to persuade our government to introduce ultrasound (abdominal and vascular) into the standard equipment of rural primary healthcare centers.
Can you maybe help us with articles which may have investigated the cost efficiency of ultrasound diagnostic in primary health care? Could be that canadians or australiens have analysed the subject or even work widely with…Continue

We are an AIUM accredited facility and follow the AIUM renal protocols which require you to evaluate the bladder as well as the kidneys. My question is, how do other facilities deal with the billing. Some doctors will send a requisition that says "renal" and we have been calling them and making them send us a new req that says bladder too. Can you bill for a bladder and/or Doppler if the MD req has just "renal" on it since it is the AIUM protocol to include bladder or do you have to have…Continue
