SKIN ULTRASOUND

The past 20 years have marked an interesting road in the development of the field of ultrasound.  I have included skin and nail ultrasound work for the last 12 years.


An explosive growth has been seen due to the need for non-invasive studies of the skin and nails.  Physicians and patients demand anatomical studies that match clinical signs for optimal medical and  surgical planning as well as excellent cosmetic results.


In this web site, you will find images, references and links that may help you  understand and/ or develop this exciting new tool at your own work place.


My best wishes to you and your team
