Established in November last year, Inner-Vision in Crewe is an MSK ultrasound service developed to meet the needs of patients who want quicker access to diagnostics, when waiting lists are at an all-time high due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Led by diagnostic MSK sonographer Kyle Foster, Inner-Vision was looking for an ultrasound system that was ergonomic, while providing the level of functionality seen in high specification machines. The clinic required a fundamental high resolution B-mode image with the scope to explore and alter image parameters to adapt to altered tissue types, optimise different characteristics of the anatomy and remove limitations seen in ‘plug and play’ machines set up for those with limited knowledge on how to effectively drive the machine to its potential.
Foster said: “The Esaote MyLab Sigma Elite ultrasound machine will undoubtedly improve diagnostic confidence and provide a means to scrutinise previously unexplorable anatomical landmarks. We will now have the ability to undertake vascular ultrasound examinations, with future plans to exercise the skills of our vascular scientist Sarah Minshull.
