Example text

Routinely, the nondominant hand holds the probe while the dominant hand places the needle, although many experienced clinicians can use either hand for either task. This technique is referred to as the freehand technique. Alternatively, a needle guide attached to the transducer may be used, which will anticipate the trajectory of the needle and allows one hand not to have to constantly hold the needle. Because both hands are often used during the procedure, it is usually recommended that an assistant be present.

16 ■ Chapter 3 / Preparation and Setup for Musculoskeletal Ultrasound-Guided Procedures Step 10. Prepare probe. There is tremendous controversy as well as variability regarding preparation of the transducer prior to any US-guided procedure. 3,4 Contamination of the US gel, skin, or transducer may increase the risk of infection. More importantly, contact with bodily fluid that remains on the transducer could theoretically be spread from one patient to another if proper technique and disinfecting of the probe do not occur.

This change in frequency is directly proportional to the velocity of the moving interface relative to the transducer. The use of Doppler flow imaging allows for improved assessment of tissues findings such as hyperemia, which may indicate an inflammatory process, granulation tissue in areas of healing, and other alterations in tissue vascularity. It is important to note that Doppler is most sensitive when the direction of movement is in the same direction as the US beam and is least sensitive when the direction is oriented perpendicularly.
