  • Accuracy of hand-carried ultrasound ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY-A JOURNAL OF CARDIOVASCULAR ULTRASOUND AND ALLIED TECHNIQUES Liang, D., Schnittger, I. 2003; 20 (5): 487-490


    Hand-carried ultrasound introduces a new group of devices, operators and usage patterns to echocardiography. This may have significant impact on the accuracy of the findings obtained with hand-carried ultrasound. Although reasonable agreement can be obtained with standard echocardiography in certain circumstances, limitations in imaging modes, device image quality, operator experience, and study completeness may significantly limit the diagnostic accuracy of hand carried ultrasound. Despite this, hand-carried ultrasound has the potential to improve significantly upon the data obtained by physical examination.
