Welcome to Ultrasoundcases.info
Welcome to www.ultrasoundcases.info. The site is developed as a teaching file. It contains a large number of general ultrasound cases from the teaching files from the Gelderse Vallei Hospital in Ede, the Netherlands. The cases are collected over the years by the radiologists and ultrasound technicians of the hospital. All the cases are presented with images in different projections and annotations to point out specific features. A number of cineloops is sometimes added to demonstrate the dynamic aspects of the various types of pathology. When available and relevant images of other imaging modalities are also added. Cases can be viewed with annotations or without, for self evaluation purposes.
The website has been developed in close co-operation with Aloka Holding Europe in Switzerland which is now part of Hitachi Medical Systems Europe. The Gelderse Vallei Hospital has been using Aloka ultrasound equipment since 1984 and is currently also using Hitachi high end ultrasound systems.
The website is updated on a daily basis with a new case and older cases are regularly removed.
The images can be downloaded easily and may be used freely for educational purposes.
