The Pain of Performing Ultrasound

Associate Professor Thomas Binder MD FESC



Here’s something we can all agree on: ultrasound is one of the most important and rapidly evolving modalities in medicine.


But while we marvel at its achievements, we rarely talk about the health care professionals all around the world who actually perform and interpret the exams. Nor do we speak about the work-related pains that we all feel from time to time.


Waking up with a sore back or shoulder, experiencing patient overload, poor referrals or a lack of understanding from other professionals: all of these ‘symptoms’ contribute to a higher chance of long-term injury, reducing quality of life and the quality of our work.


Having spent over 30 years in ultrasound, I have definitely experienced these pains. And although my joy and enthusiasm for ultrasound outweigh the pain, as it often does for my colleagues (and maybe you as well), we at 123sonography believe that these issues must be addressed with equal importance as our service to our patients.



Who is the Patient?



As Sonoworld looks to evolve alongside ultrasound technology, we want to make sure we exceed your needs, providing a critical hub of ultrasound and career-related information. A community with the answer to your question is only a click away, but to get there we need your advice.


In the short survey below,  we want to find out your very personal needs, what your pains are, and how we can best help you on the job.


We are also happy to hear your personal experiences, some of which we are happy to feature in upcoming newsletters, which we are in the process of redesigning to better serve you content relevant to your work.


We will make sure to provide you also with the results of the survey below in one of our next newsletters.


We have ambitious plans going forward, with aim to provide a “home-base” for our expanding community of ultrasound specialists. But to make sure we’re getting there, we need your help to lead the way.

Many thanks in advance,


Thomas Binder
