"I worked in an environment where lab tests were scarce and would take over eight hours, so they did not help in diagnosing patients with acute illnesses. X-rays were limited and there were no other imaging studies available. The ultrasound was instrumental in patient care. It was used to diagnose a case of acute appendicitis which needed emergent surgery, an ectopic pregnancy in a woman who needed to be rushed to the operating room, and for visualizing abdominal masses, determining if an abscess needed to be drained, diagnosing pericardial effusions and tamponade, evaluating heart failure, diagnosing hernias, and looking for free fluid in patients with abdominal trauma to determine if they had internal bleeding. It was amazing how it was used to save lives in a country that has such limited medical access. It served as our main (and sometimes only) technical diagnostic tool."

Midway through an overseas flight, an urgent request for a physician’s assistance came over the PA system. The crew feared that a woman in distress was suffering from a heart attack, and the pilot was considering turning around to make an emergency landing.  "After obtaining the woman’s medical history, I went back to my seat to retrieve the SonoSite system I brought with me for a research project in Tanzania. With ultrasound, I was able to quickly see that her heart was beating normally. I also saw stones in the gallbladder – which most likely caused her severe symptoms. We used pain medication to make her more comfortable. The plane continued on to its destination without delay."

"The limits of resolution in angiography, whether it is invasive, CT or magnetic resonance angiography, is about two millimeters. We are looking for evidence of early disease in the endothelial lining of the carotid artery, and a lot of disease can hide inside of two millimeters. Vascular ultrasound is much more sensitive. With a resolution limit of one-tenth of a millimeter, we can detect early thickening of the intima-media layer of the lining that can foretell disease."

"I am able to interpret IMT for patients in a way that makes sense to them. By comparing individual results to larger, normalized populations, I can better quantify risk, and it’s my experience that this leads to lifestyle changes in a way that numbers alone can’t."

Helmuth Fritz, MD, Chehalis, Washington

"I think our patients really respond to seeing real life pictures of their disease instead of looking at numbers, instead of talking about percentage points. We can actually see what’s going on in the arteries. We can compare them to other people just like them and I think it helps all of us, both the treating physician and the patients, to put this disease in perspective, to put their risk in real terms, to make it real and when we do that, we both engage in a good treatment plan."
