The handling of the ultrasound transducer and the needle directly influences the image displayed on the screen.
Obtaining the best needle visualization is one of the great challenges for beginners in ultrasound-guided procedures. The most common needle insertion is in the plane of the transducer and the insertion angle is usually 45° as obtuse as possible to the tissue.
In-plane, the needle is visualized (longitudinal view). It is possible to obtain a continuous visualization of the needle and its tip.
The needle is inserted orthogonally to the image plane. The result is a transverse image of the position of the needle tip (visualized as a bright point).
The needle is visualized only under the ultrasound beam. It must therefore be contained within the imaging plane. If the visibility of the needle is obstructed due to non-alignment with the transducer, the needle must be removed and a new angulation must be found. Then the needle can be inserted again. Depending on the adopted technique, ultrasound-guided procedures can be performed with the needle in the plane of the ultrasound beam or out of the plane which modifies the way the image will be obtained.
« By way of derogation, health professionals (listed in art. L. 4011-1 of the public health code) may engage, on their own initiative in a cooperative approach with the aim of transferring activities or acts of care between them or reorganizing their mode of intervention with the patient. »
For example, within the framework of a delegation protocol between an interventional radiologist and a medical radiology technician for PICC-lines placement, the technician can, under the supervision of the interventional radiologist, practice PICC-lines placement.He will have to carry out 3 teaching and training sessions on phantoms, i.e. duration of 6 hours. The practical part consists of about 10 PICC-lines as main operator, performed under the direct control of the referring physician. Our phantoms thus encourage learning and training and allow the operator to practice the medical act of PICC-lines placement.
To further enhance patient care, we produced a comprehensive training manual on ultrasound phantoms. We invite you to download it today for free.
