If you wanted the latest trusted evidence on ultrasound or other clinical topics then use Trip today.

This page lists the very latest high quality evidence on ultrasound and also the most popular articles. Popularity measured by the number of times the articles have been clicked on by fellow users in the last twelve months.

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.

Measure of benefits used in the economic analysis There was no summary measure of benefits since a cost-consequences analysis was conducted. Direct costs Discounting was not required. To estimate the cost of procedures, the prices of thyroid ultrasonography, palpation-guided FNAB, ultrasound-guided FNAB and cytologic examination were obtained from 10 hospitals in the authors' setting. The costs were then estimated (...)

962. Endoscopic ultrasound added to mediastinoscopy for preoperative staging of patients with lung cancer. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Endoscopic ultrasound added to mediastinoscopy for preoperative staging of patients with lung cancer. Up to 40% of thoracotomies performed for non-small cell lung cancer are unnecessary, predominantly due to inaccurate preoperative detection of lymph node metastases and mediastinal tumor invasion (T4). Mediastinoscopy and the novel, minimally invasive technique of transesophageal ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) target different mediastinal lymph node stations. In addition

New techniques of ultrasound which attempt to identify a twisted cord as opposed to blood flow to the testicle appear promising. The results presented do not suggest that ultrasonography alone can rule out testicular torsion. It may be that it can perform this function in cases

964. Transthoracic ultrasonography to diagnose pneumothorax in trauma

Part Question In a [patient with chest trauma] can [transthoracic ultrasonography] accurately diagnose [a traumatic pneumothorax] Clinical Scenario A 35 year old male is brought into the Emergency department after falling from a height. He is tachypnoeic and tachycardic and has tenderness on the left anterior chest and left upper abdomen. Your department has an ultrasound scanner and this is used to assess the patient's abdomen. You wonder whether it could also be used to diagnose a pneumothorax (...) pneumothoraces not visible on CXR. The clinical relevance of such small pneumothoraces in the resuscitation room is debatable (unless intermittent positive pressure ventilator (IPPV) is being considered). All ultrasound examinations are known to be operator dependent. There is some variation in the ultrasonographic signs used to confirm pneumothorax.

The authors' conclusions, that ultrasonographic (...) techniques have similar but poor accuracy, were supported by the data presented. The review appears to have been concluded in 2003 and may, therefore, be somewhat out of date.
