ad. 38. What does it mean to review the images without the presence of a patient?

Volumetric techniques such as 3D, 4D and STIC allow to review stored volume blocks both on an ultrasound scanner and on a computer with a help of a designated software. It is possible without the presence of a patient and gives an opportunity for consultations and joint consultations also through the Internet. For a few years, we have been using a licensed software. In case of every patient who has a rare fetal defect, a reproductive organ defect or a suspected anomaly, we capture a number of images which are later reviewed without a patient. Such a model of an examination significantly reduces the time of a consultation and a patient’s discomfort, allowing us to fully concentrate on an accurate diagnosis.
