Description

PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to evaluate if a dynamic automatic image optimization technique decreases examination time and number of keystrokes while maintaining or improving image quality and to determine if these variables vary with sonographer experience. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five sonographers of varying experience performed a randomized standard abdominal ultrasonography using manual and automatic techniques on 5 healthy volunteers. The time to perform the examinations and the number of images obtained were recorded, and a keystroke log was maintained for all examinations. Images were stored digitally for review and image analysis. The sonographers graded their pain during the examinations on a
