Ultrasons : Le stéthoscope de la formation image moderne

From the May 2012 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine


Carticept Medical has partnered with SonoSite to market ultrasound to the orthopedic market to enable real-time diagnosis of musculoskeletal impairments and to improve the reliability of drug delivery to orthopedic patients. The company’s Navigator Delivery System combines ultrasound technology with an automated drug injection system to increase the efficiency, accuracy and safety of administering pain-relieving medications for joint pain.

“Ultrasound has significant growth potential in the musculoskeletal market, because it offers benefits to both patients and health care practitioners,” says Timothy Patrick, president and CEO of Carticept Medical.

Not only is ultrasound helping orthopedic and sports medicine specialists diagnose musculoskeletal injuries like sports injuries, and impairments like arthritis, but it is helping to improve accuracy for pain relieving local injections. Data published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine last January demonstrated that the use of ultrasound imaging improves accuracy rates in joint injections.

Further to this, ultrasound is proving to be a better imaging modality than mammography for patients with dense breasts, says Rahemtulla. Ultrasonix has just introduced an automated breast ultrasound imaging system – SonixEmbrace -- for research applications. This system can image a breast faster than freehand ultrasound and the results are reproducible – that is, the scans don’t vary depending on who is doing the scanning.

“Adoption is unlikely to happen overnight, and without long-term, robust clinical studies underpinning its use,” says Holloway. “But with improving image quality, increasing automation, low cost and a clear safety record, ultrasound has the potential to replace mammography as the future of breast screening.”

Yet, despite its obvious wealth of benefits, many radiologists regard ultrasound as inferior to advanced imaging modalities like MRI and CT, according to Holloway. In March, the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine launched Ultrasound First, an initiative designed to call attention to ultrasound’s safety, effectiveness and affordability. It focuses on educating health care workers, medical educators, insurers, and patients on the benefits of ultrasound in medical care.
