PURPOSE To determine thermal characteristics of Signature Ellips (Abbott Medical Optics) and Infiniti OZil (Alcon, Inc.) transverse ultrasound and compare both with longitudinal ultrasound in clinically relevant scenarios. DESIGN Laboratory investigation. METHODS Temperature increase over baseline after 60 seconds was measured in water at positions in 90-degree increments around the sleeve near the proximal needle shaft in an artificial chamber for Ellips and OZil on continuous ultrasound… CONTINUE READING
