L’utilizzo dell’ecografia nell’assistenza infermieristica: una revisione bibliografica

Davide Ricci, Maria Benetton


Introduzione: negli ultimi anni l’ecografia è diventata un mezzo multidisciplinare non solo di diagnosi, ma anche di supporto a procedure terapeutiche. La non invasività fisica e biologica, la possibilità di essere realizzata al letto dell’utente e la semplice ripetibilità fanno dell’ecografia una tecnica largamente apprezzata e diffusa sia in campo diagnostico sia in campo interventistico.
