[VIDEO] Families Unite to Purchase Clarius Wireless Ultrasound for Treating Wounded on the Streets of Ukraine

When the Russian army invaded Ukraine, the Volkau, Kovaliova, Shepelevich, Herasymov, and Chaudhry families sprang into action to see how they could help relatives in the region. They discovered their cousins, Doctors Volodymyr and Elina Herasymov were urgently seeking a portable ultrasound device to take with them when treating those injured in the war.

Doctors Volodymyr and Elina Herasymov run a military clinic in the Ukraine. At the start of the war, they discovered they needed diagnostic equipment they could take with them to the streets where wounded people needed their help.

Since the start of the war, my family kept asking how we can help,” says Elly Kavaliova. “We found out that our cousins needed a portable system to take with them when they were treating people who were wounded and left on the streets. So, we decided to organize fundraising to buy them a scanner.”

Elly worked with her cousins to find the right device. “In our research, we discovered one of the most reputable and reliable portable scanners are Clarius devices produced in Vancouver, Canada,” she explains.

She contacted Clarius for pricing information and in less than a month, Elly and her family, friends, and colleagues raised the funds necessary to purchase a Clarius L7 HD with an advanced software package. Elly shared her appreciation:

Special thanks to Shelley Morris and her Manager from Clarius Mobile Health. When they heard about our humanitarian mission, they gave us a very deep discount, which allowed us to have savings that the City Clinic will use to buy medical supplies for those in need.”

Dr. Volodymyr Herasymov recently recorded a video to thank his family, friends, and Clarius for their efforts.

I’m extremely helpful to my family for organizing the funds, for their incredible efforts and help, for their love for us, and the time spent,” says Dr. Volodymyr. “From the bottom of my heart, I thank absolutely everyone who was a donor of financial resources. I am immensely happy that my country was not left alone in the fight against the aggressor.”

I would also like to thank Clarius for their ultra modern and high-quality device we now use everyday in our work and for providing a high level of service,” he continues. “This device allowed us to be quick and accessible with our diagnosis; we also use it in the operating room.”

[VIDEO] « Real Powerful Technology, » How Handheld Ultrasound Helps Whittle Down Differential Diagnoses in Emergency Medicine

You could say that Tom Cook, MD, an emergency physician based in South Carolina, is an ultrasound fanatic. He has been fascinated with the technology’s potential to help save lives since he touched his first mechanical probe more than 25 years ago. When ultrasound was miniaturized to the size of his hand, he stopped carrying a stethoscope.

I was by sheer luck pushed into learning about ultrasound technology and it’s done so many amazing things for me personally, but also for the patients I take care of and the residents I train,” says Dr. Cook. “Many physicians think it’s a fantasy to be able to walk up to a patient and immediately look inside them and know what’s wrong with them. But it’s not a fantasy. That’s exactly what ultrasound technology does today. »

We recently had an opportunity to interview Dr. Cook about how he uses ultrasound to make better decisions about caring for his patients. Watch his video interview to learn what he had to say. Or read on for highlights.

POCUS Is a Safe and Efficient Way to Determine a Patient Management Strategy

Before we had ultrasound, it really was a bit of a guessing game. We could come up with a differential, and we would try and eliminate the possibilities in that differential based on a variety of different laboratory studies and physical findings.

What I point out to people now is that you can walk into a patient’s room with a differential in mind, do an ultrasound exam, and immediately eliminate several pathologies or even make the diagnosis. 

An example would be a patient comes in with chest pain and shortness of breath.  You walk in the room, perform a cardiac ultrasound, and immediately ask yourself, « Does this guy have heart failure, a pericardial effusion, a pulmonary embolus, or a valvular problem? » Then, you examine the lungs. « Does he have pulmonary edema or pleural effusions? »

As you walk out of the room you are thinking, « I just crossed off six items from my differential. My original differential had ten possibilities, but I’ve whittled it down to three or four pathologies from my ultrasound examination alone. And, I did it within a couple of minutes. That is real powerful technology.”

POCUS Webinar Series with Dr. Tom Cook

In addition to practicing as an emergency physician, Dr. Cook has spent his career encouraging other clinicians to use ultrasound in daily practice through the ultrasound education company he founded in 1998, 3rd Rock Ultrasound. We have the privilege of hosting a series of four POCUS webinars with Dr. Cook in the coming months.

Join us for the first webinar, Cardiac POCUS: Techniques for Assessing Left Ventricular Function, to learn how to use handheld ultrasound to accurately assess left ventricular function in your patients presenting with chest pain, dyspnea, or unstable vital signs. 

During the free one-hour webinar on October 25th, Dr. Cook will give you four easy tools to quickly and reliably determine whether the left ventricle is pumping adequately.

  • Visual estimation of myocardial contractility
  • E-Point Septel Separation (EPSS)
  • Fractional Shortening
  • Mitral Annular Plane Systolic Excursion (MAPSE)

Clarius for Emergency Medicine: Saving Lives by Expediting Triage and Treatment

Dr. Cook primarily uses the Clarius PA HD3. It’s one of three Clarius scanners suitable for emergency medicine. Wireless and app-based, Clarius ultrasound delivers fast imaging and sharp detail at the bedside. Visit our emergency medicine page to learn more about which scanner is suitable for your practice.

[VIDEO] How Wireless Ultrasound Can Help Every Orthopedic Surgeon Deliver Better Outcomes

When Dr. Alan Hirahara, MD, FRCSC, started using ultrasound in 2009, he was already considered one of the top orthopedic surgeons specializing in shoulder arthroscopy and sports medicine.

A lot of really, really good surgeons don’t think they need to use ultrasound, but I’ve learned that it’s a tool that all of us could use to do a better job,” he says. “I started using ultrasound when I saw that surgeons in other parts of the world were far head of us. They were using it to analyze the structure of tissues, tendons, muscles, and ligaments prior to administering orthobiologics treatments and were achieving better results.”

Dr. Hirahara uses the Clarius L15 HD3 high-frequency linear scanner for his practice. We recently had an opportunity to interview Dr. Hirahara about his experience using wireless ultrasound at his orthopedic practice. Watch this short video to see what he said or read on for some highlights.

How Affordable, High-Quality Handheld Ultrasound is Driving Adoption

Dr. Hirahara believes ultrasound use among orthopedic surgeons is growing as it’s being taught in residencies; more clinicians are realizing ultrasound use is helping patients get better diagnosis and better treatment and ultrasound system costs are decreasing thanks to handheld ultrasound systems like Clarius.

I think what’s going to make a difference is not the ease, not the technology, it’s the price. With all of the reimbursement cuts and slashes and diminishments in Medicare and all the other PPOs, well, we’re now making less money. So, there’s less incentive for us to invest in technology. Your ability to give us less expensive technology is what’s truly going to make the difference and convince people to give it a try. Because the reality is, that’s what it’s going to take, is actually just doing it. Once you do it, it’s obvious what it’s going to do for you.”

This technology allows us to treat patients better with more options, more precision, and in the end, it’s going to be better outcomes.”

Why Dr. Hirahara Recommends Clarius Ultrasound

As an original member of the Clarius medical advisory board, Dr. Hirahara has used all three generations of the Clarius scanners.

I think Clarius, what it’s really done has revolutionized smaller and wireless. That is really where it’s at. Sure, there are other wireless ones and pseudo wireless ones and handheld units. Nothing that I have seen has come close to the quality of the image of this machine. Sure, some of the other ones are cheaper. You get what you pay for. At this point, what I like is the innovation. I like the continued push for smaller, for optimization for our usage, for improved resolution, for improved technology. »

Why Patients are Happy About Ultrasound Guidance for Orthopedic Therapy

According to Dr. Hirahara, many patients seeing him for an injection for the first time are often bracing for pain.

I hear the same thing from every single patient. Oh no, I’ve had these shots. It hurts like hell; it’s going to be really bad. It’s going to be horrible. And then when it doesn’t hurt, they’re like, well, why didn’t the other guy do that,” he recounts. « They’re blown away by the fact that number one, I can put it where I say I’m going to put it. Number two, it’s actually faster, more efficient. They’re in and out because I’m not digging and trying to guess. And three, they have such a high clinical outcome and they’re so satisfied that they’re convinced.”

[WEBINAR] Learn How Dr. Rosenblum Uses Ultrasound-Guided Tarsal Tunnel Injection for Pain Management

Renowned pain management expert Dr. David Rosenblum recently joined us to present a webinar during which he presented four ultrasound-guided interventions to help his patients cope with chronic pain. Watch the full webinar, « Head to Toe Analgesia: Ultrasound-Guided Subacromial, Cluneal Nerve, Knee, and Tarsal Tunnel Injections« , or read on for highlights about his technique for an ultrasound-guided tarsal tunnel injection.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by compression of the posterior tibial nerve.

Symptoms include tingling, burning, numbness, or pain, typically on the medial ankle or the bottom of the foot. In some cases, patients have already had surgical decompression, but a branch of the nerve may have been missed.

Locating the Tarsal Tunnel

Ultrasound-guided Tarsal Tunnel Injections are Effective

Following a cohort of 228 patients who had ultrasound-guided tarsal tunnel injections, it was shown that over 75% of the patients required no actual tarsal tunnel release down the line, indicating that this procedure does provide an effective conservative treatment option for patients with tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Dr. Rosenblum’s Criteria

I don’t even usually go to the tarsal tunnel unless it’s a tarsal tunnel problem. Because the tarsal tunnel is so superficial. And you may also only block one of the branches of the tibial nerve at this area and may not get everything you want. If you want more proximal, you’ll get a lot more coverage.”

Typically, Dr. Rosenblum uses a transverse approach to locate the tibial nerve at the level of the medial malleolus. He uses an in-plane technique to guide his needle into the tarsal tunnel from posterior to anterior, through the retinaculum, and avoiding the posterior tibial artery.

Using ultrasound ensures a safe injection of local anesthetic into the compartment which houses the nerve.

Watch the video to see how Dr. Rosenblum performs a tarsal tunnel injection.

[WEBINAR] How to Perform an Ultrasound-Guided Cluneal Nerve Cryoablation to Treat Lower Back Pain

Low back pain is a very common complaint, but non-specific in 85% of sufferers. We’re learning that Cluneal neuralgia is often a common cause this pain, which is often dismissed as a Gluteal Trigger Point, SI Joint Pain, or Facet Pain.

Dr. David Rosenblum, a regional anesthesiologist specializing in pain management, recently presented a webinar during which he presented four ultrasound-guided interventions to help his patients cope with chronic pain, including lower back pain, « Head to Toe Analgesia: Ultrasound-Guided Subacromial, Cluneal Nerve, Knee, and Tarsal Tunnel Injections« .Watch the full webinar or read on for highlights about cluneal nerve injections.

When to use the Cluneal Nerve Injection

In fellowship, in training, and even afterwards, I would dismiss this as a trigger point gluteal bursitis as an SI joint, as lumbago, as even L5-S1 facet maybe”

 Patients with Superior Cluneal Nerve (SCN) neuralgia present with:

  • Low back pain to the Iliac crest and buttocks
  • Symptoms exacerbated by lumbar puncture or posture
  • Trigger point over the PSIS (corresponding to nerve compression zone)
  • Numbness and radiating pain in the SCN area when trigger point compressed (Tinel’s)
  • Relief with SCN block

Isu T, Kim K, Morimoto D, Iwamoto N. Superior and Middle Cluneal Nerve Entrapment as a Cause of Low Back Pain. Neurospine. 2018;15(1):25–32. doi:10.14245/ns.1836024.012

The Superior Cluneal Nerve (SCN) branches across the posterior iliac crest and can become entrapped between the fascia and bone. This will correspond to a trigger point over the posterior iliac crest, 7cm from the midline.

Dr. Rosenblum shows an interesting technique using ultrasound to image a nerve stimulator in a patient with failed back surgery. He had a positive Tinel’s of the SCN just lateral to his PSIS.

The ultrasound shows a shadow from the stimulator lead, which can be traced all the way down to the iliac crest where the cluneal nerves is located. Dr. Rosenblum injects 1 ml of Lidocaine 2% with a 25-gauge spinal needle, to provide pain relief and make the diagnosis of SCN neuralgia.

Patients with Middle Cluneal Nerve (MCN) neuralgia present with:

  • Low back pain to the buttocks, often dismissed as SI joint pain
  • Symptoms exacerbated by lumbar puncture or posture
  • Trigger point 35 mm caudal to the PSIS and lateral to the edge of the iliac crest
  • Numbness and radiating pain in the MCN area when trigger point compressed (Tinel’s)
  • Relief with MCN block

Video Demonstration: Cluneal Nerve Injection

In this video, Dr. Rosenblum performs cryotherapy ablation of the SCN for a patient with chronic superior cluneal neuralgia who was earlier diagnosed with a nerve block.

Dr. Rosenblum places the scanner just lateral to the sacral foramina to locate the sacroiliac ligament. It’s this location where the middle cluneal nerves can impinge, and the target for his injection.

Ultrasound-guided nerve block to the cluneal nerves at the entrapment site, specifically at the trigger point, can be used to diagnose cluneal neuralgia, when symptoms disappear after the nerves are blocked. This can then be followed by advanced therapies like cryoablation and peripheral neuromodulation.

[WEBINAR] How to Perform an Ultrasound-Guided Suprascapular Nerve Injection to Treat Chronic Shoulder Pain
Why are we still performing blind injections?  A poll taken during a recent webinar on ultrasound-guided pain procedures indicated that inaccurate and imprecise injections continue to be seen as the biggest limitations for blind injections.

During a recent webinar on ultrasound-guided pain procedures, « Head to Toe Analgesia: Ultrasound-Guided Subacromial, Cluneal Nerve, Knee, and Tarsal Tunnel Injections« , renowned pain management expert Dr. David Rosenblum shared his experience treating a patient with chronic shoulder pain with a suprascapular nerve injection.

If you listen to my podcast and you know me, this is my favorite block to do because it’s so versatile, so safe. And you could do so much good for a variety of pathologies, whether it’s shoulder pain or even patients who have radicular pain, but it’s manifesting in this region by the supraspinatus. »

The suprascapular nerve innervates the infraspinatus and supraspinatus muscles, as well as essential portion of the capsule and ligaments in the shoulder joint, so this type of block is effective for treating chronic shoulder pain secondary to arthritis, bursitis, and rotator cuff disease including adhesive capsulitis.

There is plenty of evidence that supports the suprascapular nerve block is safe and effective for the treatment of shoulder pain. It is often combined with physical therapy to improve results.

Suprascapular nerve block is a safe and effective treatment for patients with hemiplegic shoulder pain.”

Adey-Wakeling Z, Crotty M, Shanahan EM. Suprascapular nervel block for shoulder pain in the first year after stroke: a randomized controlled trial. Stroke.2013 Nov;44(11):3136-41

Effective results after suprascaular nerve blockage was obtained for the treatment of refractory frozen shoulder cases.”

Ozkan K, Ozcekic AN, Sarar S, Cift H, Ozkan FU, Unay K. Suprascapular nerve block for the treatment of frozen shoulder. Saudi J Aneasth. 2012 Jan;6(1): 52-5.

Combination of physical treatment with Suprascapular nerve block is a safe and efficacious treatment for the treatment of shoulder pain in frozen and arthritis.”

Suprascapular nerve block is a safe and efficacious treatment for the treatment of shoulder pain in degenerative disease and/or arthritis. It improves pain, disability, and range of movement at the shoulder compared with placebo. It is a useful adjunct treatment for the practicing clinician to assist in the management of a difficult and common clinical problem.”

Shanahan EM, Ahern M, Smith M, Wetherall M, Bresnihan B, FitzGerald O. Suprascapular nerve block (using bupivacaine and methylprednisolone acetate) in chronic shoulder pain. Ann Rheum Dis. 2003 May;62(5):400-6.

Demonstration: Suprascapular Nerve Block

To locate the suprascapular nerve Dr. Rosenblum places his scanner just above the scapula.

This nerve is deeper so the depth on the screen will likely need to be adjusted to 4- 5 cm. The suprascapular nerve is located deep to the supraspinatus muscle and lies between the transverse scapular ligament and the spine of the scapula.

Watch this short Clarius Classroom Video to see how Dr. Rosenblum gives a quick overview of shoulder ultrasound and performs a supraclavicular nerve block.

A typical injection consists of Bupivicaine 0.25% 5 ml, +/- Depomedrol 5-20 mg, and Dr. Rosenblum’s needle of choice is a 25 gauge 3.5 inch spinal needle.

I like using this needle because I find it to be less painful. It’s 25 gauge, it’s not so thick. I’ve used the echogenic or blunt needles, and I find that the blunt needle, I need more force to get in and it hurts a lot more. “

[VIDEO] Why Using Ultrasound Helps an Aesthetic Physician Sleep Soundly

I want to be able to look my patients in the eye and tell them I did everything I could to keep them safe,” says Dr. MJ Rowland-Warmann in response to a question about why she began using ultrasound at her aesthetics practice.

A former dentist, Dr. MJ now limits her practice to performing aesthetic procedures for her patients, helping referred patients suffering from complications related to aesthetic procedures, and teaching colleagues how to use ultrasound. She is the clinical director at the SmileWorks Hub, a dental and aesthetic clinic in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

I think ultrasound is the most important development that has come to aesthetic medicine since the invention of filler,” she says. “There is nothing like it, never have we been able to see underneath the surface of the skin. And it is so important that we improve safety in our procedures.”

Dr. MJ’s ultrasound training coincided with the beginning of the pandemic when she heard from fellow practitioners who had been using ultrasound to improve procedure safety. She also learned about the availability of affordable handheld ultrasound devices.

I think Clarius sits in a league of its own and that’s a good thing. We have this accessible device that can be used in aesthetic medicine to improve safety for patients. This tiny machine has phenomenal processing power and image quality and when you combine it with external displays, like an iPad or an iPad Pro, Clarius is so close to the conventional cart-based systems. Yet it’s in a lower price league so aesthetic practitioners can easily incorporate it in their practices.”

Dr. MJ has been using the Clarius L20 HD since 2020 and recently switched to the new Clarius L20 HD3, which is 30% smaller and lighter than its predecessor. We recently had the opportunity to talk to Dr. MJ during a video interview about her experience with using ultrasound guidance. Watch this short video to learn what she had to say.

[VIDEO] A Patient’s Perspective on Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift « Ultrasound Makes it So Much Safer »

Given the dangerous reputation of Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL), Amanda Leyva, a wife and mother of three, thought long and hard for years before undergoing the procedure. After moving to Miami, where BBLs are popular, she began her research to find the best plastic surgeon in the city.

We recently had the opportunity to interview Amanda about her experience.

Miami is the center for plastic surgery and the BBL or plastic surgery in general is just a dime a dozen down here. So, there were lots of choices and a lot of doctors who had produced beautiful results; I found Dr. Pazmiño, and he was definitely different,” Amanda says.

Watch the video to see what she says. Or read on for highlights.

I was really excited to meet with him in person for a consult as most plastic surgeons in the area just want you to send in photos and then you go in for surgery before you’ve met them. We talked about the procedure and about how he does it a little bit differently with the ultrasound technology that it makes it so much safer. I told my husband that this is the only doctor I would consider. Knowing that Dr. Pazmiño uses ultrasound gave me the confidence that I would be ok.

Amanda was back at work two weeks after the surgery and three months following the successful surgery is delighted with the results.

It gave me exactly what I was looking for. There were no complications, everything went really well. The first week is a little tough, but just day by day, it gets better and better,” she says. “And you see the results and the changes every day too. So, it’s exciting. It’s an exciting process. And I love it.”

About Dr. Pat Pazmiño, MD, FACS

Dr. Pat Pazmiño, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has been practicing for 19 years and has been using ultrasound for the past nine years. He created the ultraBBL™, which combines the latest techniques in aesthetic surgery with ultrasound for the safest outcomes. Dr. Pazmiño hopes that the use of ultrasound will change the historically dangerous and blind procedure into a safe and reproducible surgery.

Ultrasound helps us see the anatomy and our instruments clearly in real-time so we can ensure we’re placing fat above the muscle safely with millimeter accuracy,” he explains.
