Planning a Clinical Trial?

Will your Clinical Trial require ultrasound imaging?

Ultrasound imaging is usually a minor but essential component of some types of Clinical Trials.

Some of your Clinical Trial sites may not have the appropriate ultrasound imaging equipment readily available…when needed by your Clinical Trial patients.

For accurate Clinical Trial data, state-of-the-art ultrasound imaging equipment is mandatory.

For consistent Clinical Trial data, the same make and model ultrasound imaging equipment should used at each Clinical Trial site.

Arranging for your Clinical Trial’s ultrasound imaging equipment requirement should not distract you from the primary focus of your Clinical Trial.

When your Clinical Trial has been completed, disposition of the ultrasound imaging equipment used for the Clinical Trial should be of no concern to you.

We rent state-of-the-art GE Ultrasound imaging equipment for Clinical Trial in the USA.

If your upcoming Clinical Trial will require ultrasound imaging equipment , we can help so that you can focus on the essential parts of your Clinical Trial.

Contact us any time to discuss how we can easily and efficiently provide state-of-the-art GE ultrasound imaging equipment for your Clinical Trial.

Evidence-based pain medicine for primary care physicians

ABSTRACT
The last several decades have seen a marked increase in both the recognition and treatment of chronic pain. Unfortunately, patients frequently misunderstand both the nature of pain and the best practices for its treatment. Because primary care physicians treat the majority of chronic pain, they are ideally situated to provide evidence-based pain care. The majority of the medical evidence supports a biopsychosocial model of pain that integrates physical, emotional, social, and cultural variables. The goal of this primer is to assist primary care physicians in their understanding of pain, evaluation of the chronic pain patient, and ability to direct evidence-based care. This article will discuss the role of physical rehabilitation, pain psychology, pharmacotherapy, and procedural interventions in the treatment of chronic pain. Given the current epidemic of drug-related deaths, particular emphasis is placed on the alternatives to opioid therapy. Unfortunately, death is not the only significant complication from opioid therapy, and this article discusses many of the most common side effects. This article provides general guidelines on the most appropriate utilization of opioids with emphasis on the recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, risk stratification, and patient monitoring. Finally, the article concludes with the critical role that a pain medicine specialist can play in the management of patients with chronic pain.
