Three-dimensional ultrasound and image-directed surgery: implications for operating room personnel.

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The proliferation of new imaging technologies is having a profound impact on all surgical specialties. New means of surgical visualization are allowing more surgeries to be performed less invasively. Three-dimensional ultrasound is a technology that has potential as a diagnostic tool, as a presurgical planning simulator, and as an adjunct to image-directed surgery. This article describes how three-dimensional ultrasound is being used by the United States Department of Defense and how it may change the role of the perioperative nurse in the near future.
