The role of ultrasound in urolithiasis   In the following article, the anatomy which causes uroliths to become so problematic are discussed, and the role of ultrasound in its diagnosis.

They have a......

Indeed, the importance of an association for self-employed lay scanners, who would otherwise practice in isolation, is arguably even more vital. A commitment to continued learning is a responsibility that comes with the......
