Title : Dermatological Ultrasound


Ultrasound was first introduced in clinical dermatology in 1979. Since that time, ultrasound technology has continued to develop along with its popularity and utility. High-frequency ultrasound (HFUS) have allowed for high-resolution imaging of the skin from the stratum corneum to the deep fascia. This non-invasive tool allows physicians to assess the skin dynamically and in real-time, enabling enhanced diagnostic, management, and surgical capabilities. In this presentation, I will introduce how HFUS fits into the landscape of skin imaging. A brief history of its introduction to dermatology will be provided, explaining the key principles of ultrasonography. I will then review its use in characterizing normal skin, common neoplasms of the skin, dermatologic diseases and cosmetic dermatology.

Audience Take Away Notes:
• HFUS is a fast, safe and readily available tool that can aid in diagnosing, monitoring and treating dermatologic conditions by providing more objective assessment measures.
• Appreciating the value of high frequency ultrasound in the treatment of moderate and severe acne vulgaris
• Appreciating the value of high frequency ultrasound in the treatment of moderate and severe skin cancers
• Appreciating the value of high frequency ultrasound in planning filler injections to prevent complications
