In this 5 Minute Sono video, we’ll guide you through the process of using ultrasound imaging to identify and diagnose inguinal and femoral hernias. Hernias can be difficult to identify with physical examination alone (and may actually be missed on CT!), but with ultrasound imaging, healthcare professionals can detect hernias at the bedside with greater accuracy and confidence.
This video will walk you through the steps of performing an ultrasound scan for hernia identification, including patient positioning, ultrasound probe placement, and image interpretation. You’ll learn about the different types of hernias and how they appear on ultrasound images, as well as the key features to look for when assessing for a hernia.
