What are the signs of ultrasound therapy; complications?

Add answer

Results from a recent paper of ultrasound are dependent on several factors, including the examiner's level of experience, the technology used and the ultrasound probe used.

What is the primary cause of ultrasound therapy; complications?

Add answer

Use of US for therapeutic purposes is relatively safe. However, the number of adverse side effects or complications is not insignificant. To decrease complications, one needs to first select patients carefully and accurately because it is not easy to predict every patient's prognosis; second, use a detailed knowledge of ultrasound techniques and the equipment used (sensitivity, specificity, wavelength, depth of penetration, etc.) before starting a therapeutic procedure in conjunction with an ultrasound.

Unverified Answer

Does ultrasound guided skin marking improve quality of life for those with ultrasound therapy; complications?

Add answer

US-guided skin marking was well tolerated and was effective in improving quality of life and decreasing patient anxiety. The application of ultrasound-guided skin marks offers clinicians a new option for providing effective [pain management](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/pain-management) for patients with nonmalignant pain and has demonstrated value for use in palliative care.

Unverified Answer

What does ultrasound guided skin marking usually treat?

Add answer

The use of ultrasound guidance and the placement of a skin mark in most cases results in a needle that is in a different portion of the skin compared with the actual target, in some cases more so than 10 mm. The deviation from a proper placement of the needle is most likely related to the experience of the operator and the type of needle he/she uses. Ultrasound guided placement of skin marks appears to perform the best (compared to skin prick and non-manipulation) without a significant number of complications and is considered as an effective option when attempting to insert several of the most common needles.
