I have got a special treat for you today. As a final hurrah in Gynae month I have saved the best for last. Dr Matt Dawson of the UltrasoundPodcast [the slower talkin’ one with the carefully-styled hair] has been good enough to share his diagnostic algorithm, US pearls and silky smooth tones. We recorded this chat on the diagnostic workup for the woman presenting with early pregnancy bleeding.
There has been a lot of new evidence and data in this area in recent years which has meant a shift in the diagnostic paradigms that we were all taught in Med School.
This podcast runs for about 25 minutes and we discuss quite a few recent papers and traps that you might see on your bedside US assessment. So please listen in and look at the images below so it all makes a bit more sense.
Or – you can just go get your iPad, download Bedside Ultrasound Vol 1 [and 2] and read the great chapter on early pregnancy bleeding.
