Increase efficiency and consistency in obstetric ultrasound with protocol-based exams

Monday, December 14

In a busy practice, the standardization and consistency of ultrasound exams is crucial to productivity, as well as patient throughput and satisfaction.

 

But how do we actually institute standard and consistent protocols to increase productivity, consistency and throughput?

 

Hear from Dr. Michael Ruma, MPH, OB/GYN and maternal fetal medicine expert, on his institution’s positive experience with implementing automated, protocol-based obstetric ultrasound examinations.

Utilize lower extremity venous ultrasonography to solve superficial vein insufficiency challenges

Monday, December 14

Doppler ultrasonography of the lower extremity venous system is a challenging test to perform due to the complexity and variability of the human anatomy.

 

Successful completion of this test requires knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and hemodynamics of the deep and superficial veins of the lower extremity.

 

Join our talk with Muhammad Hasan, MBBCh, RPVI, RVT, RDCS, RDMS to learn imaging techniques, normal and abnormal Doppler imaging characteristics, diagnostic approaches to this test, and the correlation with other testing modalities.

 

Confidently target lesions with ultrasound image fusion and needle navigation

Tuesday, December 15

Ultrasound is a fast, high-resolution and dynamic imaging tool but can lack the complete anatomical context provided by CT and MRI.

 

Image fusion allows for highly detailed analysis of targeted regions by leveraging additional imaging benefits offered by other modalities, especially if lesions are unidentifiable and or require further examination.

 

Hear from Dr. Edward Kim, Director of Interventional Oncology and Assistant Professor of Radiology and Surgery in the Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, as he discusses his own experience with and benefits of the fusion of these images and how they provide additional needle navigation information, helping to deliver exceptional patient outcomes.

Ultrasound shear wave elastography for liver fibrosis assessment

Wednesday, December 16

Liver biopsy has been considered the reference standard for fibrosis assessment and stage classification in the past but biopsy is invasive and can have interobserver variability at microscopic evaluation, with potentially severe complications.

 

Ultrasound elastography, a noninvasive method for liver fibrosis assessment, has been a recent area of intense research and is beginning to replace liver biopsy as a method for diagnosis and follow-up of liver fibrosis.

 

Join us for a discussion with Dr. Richard Barr, PhD to review the ElastPQ shear wave elastography technique, published guidelines on the use of SWE for liver fibrosis assessment, and both the clinical and future potential applications of this technique.

 

Clinical importance of volume measurements

Tuesday, December 15

Strategies to integrate into chamber quantification with HeartModel: Studies show that changes in the volume of the left atrium can be an early indicator of heart failure – but it’s a complex measurement that is typically not utilized.

 

Join us for an evening of discussion and hands-on learning to understand the value and importance of including LA volume as part of your protocol for chamber quantification with Dr. Muhamed Saric, MD, PhD, FACC, FASE.

 

Plus, be introduced to Philips HeartModel, a new Anatomically Intelligent Ultrasound (AIUS) tool that brings advanced quantification, automated 3D views and robust reproducibility to cardiac ultrasound imaging in less time than traditional 2D exams.
