What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

For further information on Trip click on any of the questions/sections on the left-hand side of this page. But if you still have questions please contact us via jon.brassey@tripdatabase.com

localisation. When ultrasound was utilised for ex vivo specimen analysis to ensure adequate margins, investigators noted that specimen ultrasonography is less likely to overestimate the margin than specimen mammography (59.9% vs. 66.7%); further consolidating the claim that it is a more accurate technique of margin determination. An interesting outcome of the analysis by Tan et al. (2006) is that if the margin measured with intraoperative specimen ultrasound is at least twice the desired histological (...) localisation. However, it is important to caution the fact that breast surgeons should receive adequate training before utilising this procedure. Otherwise, the presence of a radiologist in the operating theatre is highly recommended; at least until the surgeon acquires adequate experience and confidence with the use of ultrasound.
