The SDEP® Abdomen progression was developed to image every type of abdominal pathology including the most challenging views. The protocol employs a numbering system which references key points in the abdomen in order to identify certain structures such as the pylorus, the portal hilus, the pelvic urethra, adrenal glands, etc. This system is a universal tool for direct and remote instruction. Specific positions can be referred to in order to direct optimization of the view for particular pathology.
The SDEP™ Echo progression also utilizes a numbering system to optimize every region of the heart to evaluate functions, velocities, pressures and chamber sizes. SDEP® Echo includes three separate measurements for the left atrial measurements and all standard Doppler velocities. Alternative views image the right atrium and auricle to ensure visualization of heart base masses.This protocol affords the most complete image set for evaluation of the heart from acquired to congenital disease.
"The SonoPath approach makes sense! It's efficient, clinically applicable ultrasound. My ultrasound skills took the biggest jump in my career after learning the SDEP® protocol. The SonoPath team has been supportive and helpful with every question or "bump in the road" I've had along the way.”
