Abbott Laboratories and Mexico's national rehabilitation institute (INR) have launched an initiative aimed at extending the use of ultrasound in diagnosing conditions affecting the bones and joints. The "first international workshop on ultrasound" - although triggered by Mexican interest in widening access to this use of u/s - aims to increase the number of clinicians trained in the use of the technology in other countries in the region. Quoting researcher Dr Emilio Fillipuci, of Italy's Universita Politecnica delle Marche, in Ancona, the company said that the benefits of ultrasound include its low cost, the comfort for the patient and the advances in real-time imaging.
