Following on from the immense response from Testicast I – we delve deeper…
You know what they say: Two testicle podcasts are better than one! OK, we don’t know if anyone’s ever said that…..but it’s true. It just seems like the right number. So here you go. You may have finished the last podcast feeling slightly incomplete, but this should do the trick. If you’re not a testicle master or scrotum sensei by the end of this then…………..well let us know and we’ll try again.
Boys and Girls, it’s that time of year again.
It’s December and you know what that means. It’s Testicle Month on The Ultrasound Podcast! We’re going to spend the Holiday season teaching you about how to ultrasound the acute scrotum. Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, we don’t care. We think everyone should be handy with testicle ultrasound, mainly because we know we may be traveling in your neck of the woods when our very own testicles start aching. So sit down, grab some eggnog, put on your mock turtleneck, and enjoy….
…and if you enjoy the testicast – stay tuned for a deeper dive into testicle heaven in part II

What? Who’s ever heard of such!
Mainly anyone who’s been reading the literature lately, that’s who. Some pretty sweet lit has been published lately regarding MSK ultrasound and it’s time to get on board. The scaphoid is a little crazy, though, right. A non-long bone, and in the hand. Crazy, you may say, but…… what if you could avoid the CT, MRI or a long wait in an unnecessary thumb SPICA. Well, maybe you can. Take a listen to our expert guest presenter, look up the literature, start practicing, and decide for yourself.
Yo, scan dog! Wud up?
While some folks sit around just thinking about eFast scans, we go a step farther and create a rap about it…
…Yes you read correctly. A rap about eFast.
This was created by Ultranoize who is apparently “So Loud it Hertz“. Now this is a new feature here, and hopefully there will be some more dope rhymes soon for yo’ funky ears.
The Wait is Over on Wall Motion
Diagnose Wall Motion Abnormalities on Bedside Ultrasound! Are you serious?! Oh yea.
Have you ever had a patient with chest pain and a non-diagnostic EKG, but you were sure they were having an MI??
Did you know 80-90% of those patients may have a wall motion abnormality?
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could diagnose those and get ‘em to cath lab IMMEDIATELY? Of course it would! Well if you want to learn how, here’s our podcast on how to do just that…

Hey readers, watchers, listeners, viewers, subscribers, and fans. We’ve got a quick podcast episode you’ve got to check out. We were lucky enough to be on Rob Orman’s ERCast. We made the cut to be featured on Rant Off 2011. We got to speak on using ultrasound vs. using CT for appendicitis. Surf on over there and check out this super informative cast. We come in around the 33.15 mark, but make sure you listen to the whole episode. Super educational. Thanks again to Rob for letting us be a part of this great episode.
Ok Kids, today we’ve got a twofer for you.
We recently had the pleasure of conducting an interview with Dr. Vicki Noble. Yes, that Vicki Noble; the current chair of the ultrasound section of ACEP.
More info about Dr. Noble (as taken from ReachMD):
Dr. Vicki E. Noble practices emergency medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, where she is the division director for Emergency Ultrasound. Dr. Noble received her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and completed a fellowship in emergency ultrasound at St.Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York. Dr. Noble is certified as a registered diagnostic medical sonographer, a fellow of the Amercian College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), and the chair councilor for the ultrasound section within ACEP. She has been nominated for the Harvard University Medical School Teaching Award and the Brian McGovern Award for Clinical Excellence at Massachusetts General Hospital. She has taught extensively in emergency ultrasound both in the United States and internationally.
In this podcast…
We get the inside scoop as Dr. Noble talks extensively about the upcoming happenings in the ultrasound section of ACEP including exciting online changes as well as an October meeting. One of our favorite things to ask folks during interviews is what ultrasound techniques they get excited about. Vicki speaks about a recent use of ultrasound to locate a hernia. Sooooo, as a bonus, we’ve added some extra info on using ultrasound to diagnose hernias.
This is definitely a podcast you don’t want to miss. Heck, we’ve even slapped some bloopers onto the end. Every second of this one is chock full of yummy ultrasound goodness. So watch it, download it, give us some feedback, and use the knowledge to go farther in your practice.
BONUS… You don’t want to miss this
OK, guys. You’re definitely going to want to keep it here. In the next few days, keeping in line with our hernia discussion, we’re releasing a hernia case study. We’re having a very special guest help with this discussion. His name is Arnold and he used to “Terminate“. You are NOT going to want to miss this.
