When I learned how to use ultrasound, I thought - wow, now I have this tool, I’ll never miss an IV again! I mean, you can see what you’re doing in real time - what could possibly go awry?
Well… plenty, as it turns out. And through trial and error (not to mention the guidance of some people cleverer than myself), I’ve refined my technique… here are some tips that you may find useful.
Welcome to the future where apps, AI, handheld devices and robots are taking over ultrasound education and scanning.
I’d like to introduce you to Clip De-identifier. Preparing a talk? Posting on a blog? or just storing your logbook images - This nifty program developed by Ben Smith from Ultrasound of the Week allows you to crop patient information and unnecessary data from your ultrasound images or clips as well as removing the metadata embedded in the clip.
It is simple to use with a drag and drop interface, compatible with MAC and PC and allows you to preview your images before clipping. It will save you loads of time especially with batch conversion being possible when you want to de-identify more than one ultrasound clip. Best of all it's free and open access!
Email me your tips or leads on any new or amazing ultrasound tech/apps/blogs and I will review them in the future - Luke Phillips (Victoria Co-chair).
