Ultrasound of the Week | UOTW #36

Ultrasound of the Week | UOTW #36.

Emergency physicians can be trained to identify these lesions with good accuracy. A study by Kerwin et al found that after a brief,  30 minute training module, median percentages correct improved from 67% to 87% when reviewing pre-recorded clips.

I’m at a loss to explain why I like looking at ultrasounds.  I guess I’m simply fascinated that some people can actually know and understand what they’ looking at.  My physician in the family says it’s a matter of numbers.  The more you look at, the better you get.

Underwriters will find the answer and pearl section more useful.
