The emerging practice of 3D Ultrasound.

Presented By: Dr. Syed Shoaib MuhammadThe emerging practice of Ultrasound.

Definition of Ultrasound:The emerging practice of Ultrasound.

Sound whose frequency is greater than that perceivable by humans (>20kHz)Medical UltrasoundImaging 1-12MHz (>40MHz in specialized applications)1.5 mm 0.125 mmTherapy: 100kHz-1MHz Heating, cauterization, cavitation US Capabilities & LimitationsProvides Real-Time imagingColor Doppler Non-invasive flow measurementEssentially non-toxicInexpensivePoor or no imaging through bone, gasOperator dependent image quality Images more difficult to interpret than CTThe emerging practice of Ultrasound.3Medical applications of 2d ultrasoundThe emerging practice of Ultrasound.

Thin limbs in at 17 weeks. US reconstructed images. Small for date baby with abnormal proportion, large head and thin limbs and trunk, is demonstrated. (lower) Postmortem -CT scan image of surface anatomy (left) and bony structure (right) of the same baby.

Postnatal appearance of foot and hand. The same appearance as prenatal imaging is seen.2D V/s 3d Ultrasound.Clearer to the untrained eye.Mothers are better able to recognize their baby.Visual image, stronger emotional connection.
