You are invited to participate in a survey of sonographer ergonomics being conducted by Michael Cursaro from Royal Adelaide Hospital. This is a fantastic project he is working on, which I hope will lead to a cultural change about how we view sonography-related injuries.
Additional information can be found below or click directly to the survey

There is no doubt that over the past 10 years the average size of our patients has increased noticeably. It is well recognized that body habitus plays a role in echo image quality, with both unusually small and large patients potentially being difficult to image. There is however considerable variability between individuals and it is near impossible to predict image quality just by “sizing” the patient up.
Today’s post focuses on the “fifth” acoustic window to the heart, the right sternal edge (RSE). The right sternal edge , or right sternal border, allows improved visualization of the mid to distal ascending aorta and potentially an improved angle of incidence for assessing aortic stenosis. Whilst some consider this a routine component to the scan, other sonographers are quite unsure of how to approach this.
