The sonography course on ‘acute medicine’ in hepatology is intended for physicians with an interest in acute medicine, and in particular, acute hepatology. At least some experience in ultrasound is preferable. During the course, different cases of ‘acute hepatology’ will be demonstrated with a sonography-simulator. All cases represent real-life cases of patients who presented at the emergency department. Most important diagnoses in acute or emergency hepatology are, acute cholecystitis, cholangitis due to choledocholithiasis, severe acute hepatitis, and thrombosis of liver vessels like Budd Chiari syndrome. Pathology outside the liver will also be shown, e.g. splenic rupture.
- to become familiar with the most important ultrasound signs or diagnoses in patients presenting at the emergency department
- to be able to recognize inflammatory changes of the gallbladder, detect stones in the gallbladder and in the biliary tree, recognize dilated bile ducts, and to detect thrombosis of liver vasculature
- in addition, familiarize with some acute pathology outside the liver, such as splenic rupture.
Red bars show acquired areas of patient. Red arrows equate to intercostal fan volumes.
Cases were acquired for example with convex, linear probe, in color doppler modus and maybe at several dates. You can open details and browse image list of regions of interest (ROIs), which are supported by simulator as you can be led automatically to these structures (bubble in space).
