Gallbladder Motility Study
Time 0 min: Measure GB in long axis and short axis from subxiphoid approach and right intercostal approach. The proper position is maximum size of the GB measure in length apex to cystic duct and maximum width. 2 efficiency clips in long axis sweeping the GB; 1 from subxyphoid and 1 from right intercostal approaches.
Feed the patient 1 can of A/D
Time 15 min: Same 4 images and measurements and GB efficiency 2 clips as at time 0 min.
Time 30 min: Same 4 measurements and GB efficiency 2 clips as at time 0 min. The normal Gb should reduce in size by 25% after 30 min. This is a basis of a study we are doing but from a practical standpoint demonstrates if the GB is working at all. If no movement from cholecystokinin stimulated postprandially, then the GB is dysfunctional and suggests need for removal.

The reason to perform a bubble study is to confirm the presence of shunting of blood from venous to arterial flow such as a Reverse VSD or a Reverse PDA.
Costo-chondral bone marrow aspiration technique
Watch the video of the technique.
We developed this technique to be used on any abdominal organ but is especially effective in case of infiltrative, focal and multifocal GI lesions.
Lindquist Compression Technique For Thoracic FNA
This technique often makes inaccessible thoracic lesions accessible.

History Pericardial effusions typically cause some level of cardiomegaly on radiographs but note poor vascular volume in the pulmonary artery and vein. Muffled heart sounds
Ultrasound-Guided Sampling Procedures
Description Ultrasound-guided needle sampling is frequently used in the diagnostic evaluation of patients. Fine needle aspiration has the advantage of requiring minimal or no sedation
