In this intro video, we demonstrate the use of ultrasound imaging to identify fractures. Ultrasound-guided fracture identification is a minimally invasive technique that allows for quick and accurate diagnosis of fractures, without the need for radiation or contrast agents. Additionally, it can be used during reductions to assist in identification of adequate alignment without the need for a C-arm!
Also, if you happen to be using a hematoma block as your analgesic, ultrasound can be vastly useful in a precision injection directly into that fracture.
Whether you’re a medical professional or simply curious about the latest advancements in diagnostic imaging, this video is sure to provide valuable insights into the world of ultrasound-guided fracture identification and hematoma blocks.
