Musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) has become a relevant part of rheumatology practice and research. This imaging modality substantially allows us to optimise the management of inflammatory, degenerative and crystal-related musculoskeletal diseases. MSUS is a valuable point-of-care tool to accurately assess intra-articular and periarticular abnormalities involved in rheumatic diseases. Furthermore, MSUS is a bedside aid for guiding accurate and safe musculoskeletal diagnostic aspirations and therapeutic injections...

BACKGROUND: Paramedic-performed out-of-hospital ultrasound is a novel skill that has gained popularity in some services in recent years. In this setting point-of care ultrasound (POCUS) can provide additional information that can assist with management and guide transport to the most appropriate facility. We sought to explore the different educational approaches used for training paramedics in ultrasound in the out-of-hospital setting. METHODS: Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, EBM Reviews, The Cochrane Library, CINAHL plus, The Monash University Research Repository and the British Thesis Library were searched from the 1(st) of January 1990 to the 6(th) of April 2016...

REVIEW
Elke E Mau, Michael P Leonard
OBJECTIVE: To review the differences between normal, retractile, ectopic, ascended, and undescended testes and to describe the optimal way to perform a testicular examination to distinguish one from the other, as well as to demonstrate that ultrasound imaging is not necessary and to clarify when to consider specialist referral. SOURCES OF INFORMATION: This paper is based on selected findings from a MEDLINE search on undescended testes and orchiopexy referrals, and on our experience at the Urology Clinic at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, including review of referrals to our clinic for undescended testes and the resultant findings of normal variants versus surgical cases...

EDITORIAL
Ioan Sporea
Ultrasound-based liver elastography is being increasingly used in clinical practice to help clinicians assess prognosis and recommend the most appropriate treatment in hepatology patients. In coming years liver elastography will probably be increasingly used as part of "point of care" ultrasonography.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to determine the extent of ultrasound availability in Norwegian casualty clinics and estimate the prevalence of its use. DESIGN: A retrospective study based on a national casualty clinic registry and data from reimbursement claims. SETTING: Out-of-hours primary health care in Norway. SUBJECTS: All Norwegian casualty clinics in 2016 and reimbursement claims from 2008 to 2015. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Percent of casualty clinics with ultrasound, types of ultrasound devices and probes, reasons for/against ultrasound access, characteristics of clinics with/without ultrasound, frequency of five ultrasound indications and characteristics of the physicians using/not using ultrasound...

PURPOSE: Traumatic injuries constitute a major risk for patients in emergency units. Point-of-care ultrasound may be a determinant in reducing the deleterious impact of complications and in prognosis. METHODS: We describe the case of a 28-year-old female who reported cranial trauma, abdominal and thoracic trauma, and suspected bilateral fracture of the femur. RESULTS: Ultrasound was useful for evaluating and monitoring multiple organ failure...

We report a case of an 81-year-old man, hospitalized for sepsis unresponsive to targeted antibiotic therapy, who underwent abdominal aortic aneurysmectomy with stent placement before 12 years. Point-of-care ultrasound examination showed the presence of a voluminous and inhomogeneous lesion adjacent to the anterior wall of aortic bifurcation with pulsatile flow from the aorta into the lesion, highlighted by Color-Doppler, and peripheral (closely with intestinal loops) floating hyperechoic spots marked by posterior comet tail artifact, suggestive for the presence of air bubbles...

Complementary to part 1, this review summarizes indications, opportunities and applications of ultrasounds in palliative care medicine. In particular, the following topics are discussed: · Ultrasound as a non-invasive, low-threshold, bedside technique, which uniquely combines diagnostic efficacy and empathy.. · Sonographic surveillance of patients with malignant disease.. · Point-of-care application of ultrasound in palliative care services.. · Ultrasound-guided palliative interventions (drainage of effusions and other therapeutic procedures)...

This prospective, cross-sectional diagnostic study examined the performance of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) in the diagnosis of suspected non-angulated forearm fractures in pediatric patients aged 4-17 years, using x-rays as the gold standard. The test characteristics reported are a sensitivity of 94.7% (95% CI 89.7-99.8%), a specificity of 93.5% (95% CI 88.6-98.5%), a positive likelihood ratio of 14.6, and a negative likelihood ratio of 0.6.

This case-report describes a 4-year-old girl brought to the emergency department for the evaluation of limp and elevated inflammatory markers. The patient's history and physical examination did not reveal a clear source of pathology. Point-of-care ultrasound identified a right-sided psoas abscess that was confirmed with computed tomography scan. This case demonstrates the potential utility of point-of-care ultrasound in the diagnosis and management of patients presenting to the emergency department with symptoms concerning for pathology in the hip or lower abdomen...

OBJECTIVES: Point-of-care ultrasound (US) is an emerging tool used by pediatric emergency physicians in the last decade. Currently in the Middle East, point-of-care US use and education are at an early stage, with no designed curriculum or guidelines for its implementation in pediatric emergency medicine (EM). The objective of this article is to describe the clinical and educational uses of point-of-care US among certified pediatric EM physicians. METHODS: A 19-question survey was sent to all certified pediatric emergency physicians and fellows in pediatric emergency fellowships in Saudi Arabia in February 2016...

We were interested to read the recent paper by Gungor F and colleagues published in May issue of the Acad Emerg Med 2017.(1) The aim of the authors was to evaluate diagnostic value of point-of-care US (POCUS) in clinical decision making of emergency physicians (EPs) for acute appendicitis (AA) in the emergency department (ED).(1) A total of 264 patients were included into a prospective observational clinical study and based on their results 169 (64%) had a diagnosis of AA.

PURPOSE: Measurement of inferior vena cava collapsibility (cIVC) by point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been proposed as a viable, non-invasive means of assessing fluid responsiveness. We aimed to determine the ability of cIVC to identify patients who will respond to additional intravenous fluid (IVF) administration among spontaneously breathing critically-ill patients. METHODS: Prospective observational trial of spontaneously breathing critically-ill patients...

Background.:  Unexplained abdominal pain is a common cause of hospital admission and utilizes significant resource. Current in-patient pain management of acute exacerbation of chronic abdominal pain is primarily directed at pharmacological and psychological management strategies in this group of complex patients. We adopted a novel approach that proved to be both clinically effective and cost-effective. Design.:  Adult patients admitted to a surgical ward with acute exacerbation of chronic abdominal pain referred to in-patient pain management were prospectively audited over a two-year period at a single tertiary centre...

OBJECTIVES: In children with radiograph fracture-negative lateral ankle injuries, the main objective of this pilot study was to explore the accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) performed by a pediatric emergency physician in diagnosing anterior talofibular ligament injuries, radiographically occult distal fibular fractures, and effusions compared with reference standard magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: This was a prospective cohort pilot study...
