ECHOArtifacts- Things You See That Aren’t There & Things You Don’t See That Are!

An unavoidable consequence of the use of ultrasound is the production of artifacts. These can be manifested by creating an illusion of an object that is not really there, or masking an object that is present. 2-D and Doppler imaging each have their own unique artifacts. This presentation will serve to demonstrate and explore many of the common artifacts cardiac sonographers should be familiar with.

ABDUltrasound of Renal Transplants
Renal transplantation is the best treatment option for patients with end-stage renal disease, and is the most common type of transplant performed today. Sonography is the imaging modality of choice for evaluating renal transplants for anatomic complications, perinephric fluid collections, vascular compromise, and signs of rejection. This seminar will review anatomy of the transplanted kidney, scanning protocol, and complications that may arise. Representative normal and abnormal sonographic images will be used to describe and explain various findings.

In need of expert technical or applications training for your ultrasound machine?

Hospitals and biomed organizations rely on USC to assist with many first call diagnosis of their problematic ultrasound machines. Our technical staff not only works in partnership with such organizations, but in many cases will provide one on one training with the person responsible for such onsite services. This reduces system down time giving the troubleshooting individual the comfort knowing that a technical staff representative from USC will work with them.

When a facility has taken delivery of a new system from USC or when an end user covers for a colleague there can be a few questions. Our applications staff is knowledgeable with the creation of presets, measurements, reporting and network administration of multivendor systems. They can program machines exactly to the liking of individuals. USC has many commonly used systems right at their corporate offices purposed to parallel any question a songrapher may have.
