Ultrasound is playing an increasingly important role in medical student education. Although most uses of ultrasound have focused on learning purely anatomic relationships or augmentation of the physical examination, there is little documentation of the value of ultrasound as a learning tool regarding physiology alone or in association with anatomy. We devised an interactive learning session for first-year medical students using ultrasound to combine both anatomic and physiologic principles as an integration of gastrointestinal and vascular function...

Ultrasound is routinely used in assisted reproductive technology for monitoring of follicular growth, oocyte retrieval and embryo transfer, as well as for the assessment of early embryonic development in the first 5 to 8 weeks of pregnancy. Ultrasound is a form of energy, which will affect live tissues it traverses (bioeffects) by being partially transformed into heat (thermal effect) and by alternating positive and negative pressures (nonthermal or mechanical effect). In the United States 2 indices (thermal and mechanical index) must be displayed on-screen to provide the clinicians an indication of possible thermal and nonthermal changes...

Ultrasound (US) can enhance anatomy education, yet is incorporated into few non-medical anatomy programs. This study is the first to evaluate the impact of US training in gross anatomy for non-medical students in the United States. All 32 master's students enrolled in gross anatomy with the anatomy-centered ultrasound (ACUS) curriculum were recruited. Mean Likert ratings on pre- and post-course surveys (100% response rates) were compared to evaluate the effectiveness of the ACUS curriculum in developing US confidence, and gauge its impact on views of US...
