Alternative patient positioning to improve the elbow ultrasound evaluation

SonoSkills / SonoScience co-authored an article which has been published recently and can be found here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30169491.  In this article we provide an alternative patient semisupine lying positioning while scanning the elbow joint. This is in contrast with the conventional positioning where the patient is sitting on the edge of the bed or across the table on a chair. Our proposed positioning allows ultrasound-guided (USG) injections with lesser risk regarding a vasovagal syncope of the patient.
