CHAPTER 2 a TIPS FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE c ●● Spend time optimizing the image. ●● Always adjust the ultrasound controls in a systematic order as described. ●● When scanning, ensure the focal zone corresponds to the region of interest. ●● In larger patients always use a curvilinear transducer, as a linear transducer will never provide adequate depth penetration even for superficial structures. ●● If all else fails, use more ultrasound gel. U Of all imaging modalities, ultrasound is probably the most operator- and patient body habitus-dependent.

With a less mobile or unconscious patient, a different approach has to be adopted. When the patient is supine, fluid will preferentially accumulate posteriorly, where the probe cannot be placed. 3). In this position, fluid in the uppermost hemithorax will preferentially accumulate medially adjacent to the spine, but larger effusions usually also extend superiorly from the lateral costophrenic recess, as well as anteriorly. The ultrasound probe can readily access the lateral and posterolateral aspects of the uppermost hemithorax to guide intervention (Scenario 2).
