Just helping out our friend who is looking for a Sonographer in Pantai Hospital Manjung. Interested, please contact this fella, Mr Fazlan His message, "Looking a sonographer at pantai hospital Manjung..who available to apply,can send CV to firstname.lastname@example.org"
Last month, I had an After Sales training for Toshiba Xario 200 in one of the biggest and famous hospital in Malaysia. They had just bought few units of this particular system. So, on the first day, one of the doctors scan a patient and this is what the outcome...Pretty good for the first attempt isn't it?
Left Ventricular Outflow Track is the passage where the blood flow out from left ventricle to Aorta.
This is one of the structure we should look for when we do fetal heart scan. Why is it so important? because when we manage to get this view, it mean the fetus is free from TGA..
for the normal fetal heart, LVOT is suppose to be from Left Ventricle to aorta but when there is a transposition of great arteries (TGA), what happen is, instead of going to aorta, it is connected to pulmonari artery as you may seen in the diagram below (credit to wikipedia).. about the TGA, do click on the link to read in wikipedia..
Hi guys, It took me a week to post this job vacancy. It is not that I keep this to myself but because of too busy with my apps task and locum, everything can easily slipped form my mind. So, tonight while updating my 3D4D scan service fanpage (scan 3d 4d malaysia), I suddenly remember a thing I promised to some friends about posting this vacancy in my blog. They are my competitor ( other ultrasound brand) but, no harm helping others as well as helping my fellow sonographer to get a job. Well, don't be choosy over getting a first job, you'll be surprise what a first job can turn your life up! :o)
before I forgot, please send me your resume and I will forward it to my friends. Btw, the company which is looking for a clinical apps : Infinity (brand Mindray) and Diagnostica (GE)...just try your luck. your application will be base on your quality alone, not my help because I really have no say in this since I'm not working with them.. :o) Tata!
It has been a while since I last updated this blog and during that period I have actually met or contacted by a lot of readers who are interested in sonography and I'm very much appreciate the time all of you have spent to visit my humble blog. And I'm so happy that my passion in writing about sonography had actually benefit so many people in so many ways. So, today during my boring stay in Silka Hotel used to be known as Dorsett Johor Hotel, I wanted to share about doppler with you guys..
I've been working as an Application Specialist for almost 2 years now promoting Toshiba Ultrasound and when I talk about doppler scanning, general practitioner always ask me the best reason why they need doppler. So, it's easy... All GP's will need to scan early pregnancy as they are the first place all pregnant ladies will looking for to seek their advice and also to confirm the pregnancy. So, by using doppler, we can actually detect the fetal heart as the doppler will capture the blood flow in the heart. Don't believe it? Look at the image below...
To all sonographers out there, doppler is never a new thing. It can be very useful in so many ways and very valuable in increasing our level of confidence in sending out a report.
Why use doppler? Doppler is actually an application which is widely use to detect the flow..in medical ultrasound, we use it to see the flow of vessels. Why is it important? Because we can differentiate between blood vessels and ducts. Nowadays, almost all medium low range system packed up with this application. And of course for end users who are new to this they have to learn this in advanced workshop. But it is not difficult to pick up this new skill but this will make you love your job more and the challenges won't let you stay monotonic in your working hours..trust me!
This is to share with all my visitors and Scan 3D 4D Malaysia fanpage in facebook. When is the best time to do 3D.4D scan as well as details scan. Ok, the best time is around 18-26 weeks. While the baby is still small and the amniotic fluid is adequate to provide a nice space to thoroughly scan the baby in the womb. But to get a nice images of 4D, the bets time is 25-30 weeks as the baby already have a fat tissue that make them look chubby and cute. Please be sure that you have the details scan first before you do the 3D 4D scan to be sure that the baby is well and healthy.
I just had a chance to try this new technology which can only be found in some brand of high end ultrasounds. This is what they called 4D HD. The view is like you're putting a scope inside the womb and you can see a real 3D look which you can adjust the shadowing/lighting. But of course this doesn't come cheap as well. This is the image of my 25 weeks fetus.
Just received a phone call from my senior sonographer friend. She called me to tell me a story which she think I should share here with everybody to increase our knowledge about 3D 4D scan. My friend told me that she have to do a detail scan to a very late pregnancy patient as the doctor suspected the baby might have a heart problem which is too late to do a thorough scan to see the abnormality of the heart. The patient claimed that she had already done the 3D 4D scan with a young sonographer which we do know her but we keep her name as a secret because I just want to share the story not to blame anybody here. As we know her, She is actually a young sonographer who actually not working in any hospital so, in term of clinical experience, we have a doubt on her. So, when she is promoting her service for 3D 4D scan we actually can imagine what kind of trouble she can be involved in. Now what we fear most had happened, She missed a heart problem which cause the patient a shock to learnt that after the 3D 4D scan, this obvious problem was not detected at that time where she was told that the service is together with a detail scan. I don't know what happened between the patient and the sonographer during the scanning took place because I have seen her page and everybody quite happy with her. So, please pretty please, to everyone out there, if YOU are looking for someone to do 3D 4D scan for your baby, make sure you look for the right person. That's why I came up with a Scan 3D 4D Malaysia fanpage to link all the curious Malaysian facebookers to this blog. So, you will know what to expect and what should you know about 3D 4D scan. This post is to share the simple infos on 3D 4D scan and details scan. It has nothing to do with competing in ultrasound business or anything. I am not doing any locumn and working full time with an ultrasound supplier in Malaysia. So, this is not personal, it's just my responsibility to tell you what you should know. 3D 4D scan is very entertaining but, please do detail scan first by an experience sonographer or medical doctor because 3D 4D scan can be done by anybody but not the detail scan and only detail scan can tell you if your baby is not doing fine in the womb. Please share with you friends.
I am looking for sonographers who interested to work in Penang and Central area. Please send resume to my email address and I will forward your resume to the clinic/ hospital. Cosing date is 18 April 2012.
P/s: I can't guarantee you get the job but I can help you to make sure your resume reach to the right person! Don't Miss This!
I have been trying to look for job vacancy in Malaysia for almost 3 months and I'm pretty sure, this is not a good sign for those fresh graduate sonographers to look for a job in Malaysia. But, I came across this website and there are a few vacancies which you can try in Singapore!
I was interviewed by Karen D'cruz from BFM radio station this afternoon. They wanted to know about sonographer profession. The interview will be on air on next Monday in Career Unusual segment. I was really nervous during the interview and plus there a lot of activities going on all of the sudden. It was really funny because the distraction cost me a big time! I lost words but managed to finished it. But I think I can do better because I was all prepared for it. Maybe I'm just good at writing. Haha! Anyway, wait for it and I will share the link with you once it is posted in the BFM website.
You might haven't heard about Elastography before unless you are working in Imaging Department. Elastography is actually quite sometime in Medical Imaging. It is just the application of this technology is still minimal in Malaysia. Elastography is a non invasive method to confirm cancerous mass using the stiffness or strain of the soft tissue. It is widely use in breast, prostate and etc. For breast, it is very useful especially to reduced number of cases for biopsy. Since Biopsy is a quite costly procedure to determine whether the mass is malignant or benign. So, by using Elastography, we can classify the strain ratio which 1-3 is benign, >3-4 is suspected malignant and have to go through biopsy and 5 is malignant. Which can avoid the benign mass to undergo biopsy.
