News and Evidences

Westergreen-Thorne 2017 - Comparing the diagnostic accuracy of US in the community and in the hospital setting for urinary calculi - A retrospective cohort study – JCU

Ultrasound carried out by independent radiographers and GPs in the community is just as accurate as ultrasound carried out by hospital sonographers for the detection of urinary calculi in the UK. Greater use of community US for the diagnosis of urinary calculi may promote greater patient/GP satisfaction and reduce hospital attendance without loss of diagnostic accuracy.

Speets & Mali 2006 - Upper abdominal ultrasound in general practice - Indications, diagnostic yield and consequences for patient management - Family Practice

The authors conclude that anticipated patient management by the GP changed in 64% of patients following upper abdominal US. Abdominal US substantially reduced the number of intended referrals to a medical specialist, and more patients could be reassured by their GP.
