Residents and students are invited to participate in on-going studies and to initiate related investigational studies under the guidance of Dr. Thomas Costantino, Director of the Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Program.
Current studies include:
- A randomized trial of ultrasound guided versus landmark technique for needle aspiration of suspected peritonsillar abscesses
- A comparison of limited renal ultrasound plus Doppler ultrasound of ureteral jets versus microhematuria as a screening test for uretolithiasis in emergency department patients with suspicion of renal colic
