INTRODUCTION: National Institute for Health and Care Excellence Guideline 88 advocates outpatient hysteroscopy in preference to transvaginal ultrasound for premenopausal women with heavy menstrual bleeding, who are suspected of having submucosal fibroids, polyps or endometrial pathology. The guideline, however, analysed outdated studies that provided low-quality evidence. This study aimed to assess the diagnostic accuracy of transvaginal ultrasound in detecting endometrial pathology; and to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of outpatient hysteroscopy if it were to be used in preference to transvaginal ultrasound...

INTRODUCTION: A lack of patient safety research hampers capacity to improve safety in healthcare.Ultrasound is often considered 'safe' as it does not use ionising radiation, a simplistic view of patient safety. Understanding sonographers' actions towards patient safety is crucial; however, self-reported measures cannot always predict behaviour. This study is part of a PhD exploring patient safety in medical diagnostic ultrasound. The aim of this paper is to explore sonographers' responses to the patient safety concerns identified in Part one of this study...

INTRODUCTION: Written reports are often the sole form of communication from diagnostic imaging. Reports are increasingly being accessed by patients through electronic records. Experiencing medical terminology can be confusing and lead to miscommunication, a decrease in involvement and increased anxiety for patients. METHODS: This systematic review was designed to include predefined study selection criteria and was registered prospectively on PROSPERO (CRD42020221734)...

INTRODUCTION: In patients who undergo a total laryngectomy, one of the most common techniques for voice rehabilitation is a tracheoesophageal prosthesis. Typically, this is accomplished using an endoscope down the oesophagus to visualise puncturing of the posterior tracheal wall; however, we present a case in which the use of an endoscope was not feasible, and a novel technique had to be utilised. CASE REPORT: A mid-70s male who had a total laryngectomy secondary to laryngeal carcinoma was undergoing tracheoesophageal puncture for prosthesis placement, when it was noted that he had significant stenosis of his proximal oesophagus, precluding the use of an endoscope...

INTRODUCTION: MicroUS is a new imaging technique that may have potential to reliably monitor prostate disease and therefore release capacity in MRI departments. Firstly, however, it is essential to identify which healthcare staff may be suitable to learn to use this modality. Based on previous evidence, UK sonographers may be well placed to harness this resource. TOPIC: Currently, there is sparse evidence on the performance of MicroUS for monitoring prostate disease but early findings are encouraging...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Samantha Hill, Alison White
INTRODUCTION: Rapid increases in the utility of vascular ultrasound combined with increasing expectations from reporting physicians have required a shift to a more defined professional role for the vascular sonographer in Australia. This has created increasing pressure on newly qualified sonographers to be more job-ready and better able to navigate the challenges of the clinical workplace early in their career. TOPIC DESCRIPTION: There is a distinct lack of structured strategies that newly qualified sonographers can utilise to assist their transition from student to employee...

INTRODUCTION: Congenital pulmonary malformations are a heterogeneous group of embryological alterations at different stages of lung development, the most frequent being the congenital malformation of the airway. Lung ultrasound is a very useful tool in neonatal intensive care units, providing great value for differential diagnosis, as well as therapeutic response or early detection of complications. CASE REPORT: The case is a newborn of 38weeks' gestation who was followed by prenatal ultrasound control for suspected adenomatous cystic malformation type III in the left lung from week 22...

INTRODUCTION: The clinical implication of intrarenal venous flow patterns in decompensated heart failure with worsening renal function is unknown. We aimed to study the relationship between intrarenal venous flow patterns, inferior vena cava volume status, caval index, clinical degree of congestion and the renal outcome in patients with decompensated heart failure and worsening renal function. Secondary objectives were to study the combined endpoint of readmission and mortality rate within 30 days (after the last scan) among intrarenal venous flow patterns and the effect of congestion status on the renal outcome...
