Venography vs. ultrasound for the diagnosis of asymptomatic DVT in the upper body in children
The authors conclude that ultrasound is insensitive for DVT in the central upper venous system but may be more sensitive than venography in the jugular veins. A combination of both venography and ultrasound is required for screening for DVT in the upper venous system.

Complete compression ultrasonography of the leg veins as a single test for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.
This prospective study evaluated a standardized protocol of complete compression ultrasound comprising all proximal and distal veins (CCUS) as the only diagnostic test for DVT. The authors conclude that the CCUS protocol has a low technical failure rate and is safe with respect to excluding DVT.

In CPR Ultrasound Discerns Cardiac Standstill from Good Contractility and the Nebulous Findings in Between
Ultrasound has become standard during CPR. A quick look at the heart should, in theory, simplify pulse checks, removing the confusion of whether a perfusing rhythm is present. However, differentiating among true cardiac standstill, good contractility, and everything in between is not always easy.
