Ultrasound examination scan times research project

The International Centre for Allied Health Evidence at the University of South Australia has commenced research into ultrasound examination scan times.

Sonographers now have the opportunity to be involved in this research by completing the Australasian-wide survey. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

This research, commissioned by the ASA, seeks to identify the relationship between transducer times in the context of overall scheduled exam times, and identify if there is a relationship with quality outcomes.

The project aims to provide evidence to assist in setting scheduled exam times to ensure sufficient time is allocated to support quality outcomes for patients. This includes creating awareness that scheduled exam times need to allow time to not only physically scan a patient, but also undertake additional tasks such as gathering patient history and informed consent, documenting findings, and cleaning equipment.

This initial project has potential to lead to on to subsequent research projects.

We look forward to keeping you up-to-date on this work.
