Laparoscopic ultrasonography (LUS) has evolved as an accurate diagnostic tool to substitute for the ability to perform manual palpation during minimal access surgery. Learning proper techniques and interpreting images can be challenging. However, as surgeons apply LUS to various clinical situations, their ability to perform a thorough intracorporeal ultrasound examination can quickly improve. To begin, a laparoscopist must first have an understanding of basic ultrasound principles and an appreciation for the technology available.
