Shoulder Dislocation Revisited

A Better Way to Diagnose?

By Michael Prats on 08/03/20 05:00 AM

People have been using POCUS to diagnosis shoulder dislocation for a while now, although it is far from standard of care in most places. We have seen that it is really accurate compared to xray, but this well-done study adds some important information to the existing literature. They measure the glenohumeral distance in an attempt to make a quantifiable cut-off point for dislocation. They also take a look at potential time savings of ultrasound compared to xray! https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/96 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32111508


Deep Learning for Peripheral IV Anatomy

Expert vs Artificial Intelligence

By Michael Prats on 07/06/20 05:00 AM

Deep learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that holds a lot of promise for point-of-care ultrasound, but we don't have much data on how it performs. The fearless investigators in this fascinating study train a deep learning algorithm to recognize sonographic anatomy of the upper extremity and then pit it against expert POCUS users to see who can interpret the images most accurately! https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/95 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32181922/


Pediatric Peritonsillar Abscess

A Transcervical Ultrasound Protocol

By Delia Gold on 05/11/20 05:00 AM

For peritonsillar abscesses, sometimes you need imaging to make the diagnosis clear. Many turn to CT, but ultrasound offers an appealing alternative. A transcervical approach can be used which is likely less uncomfortable than the intra-oral method. This study looks at the implementation of a transcervical ultrasound protocol in a pediatric emergency department to see if it helps this population. https://www.ultrasoundgel.org/91 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31713253
