Authors

The authors describe the benefits and risks of massive and widespread diffusion of ultrasound diagnostics for public and affiliated centers. The main considerations regarding organizational aspects, cultural and qualitative assistance of various medical professionals belonging to the Public Service, unfortunately point out that not all lesions found are able to use the same standardized diagnostic criteria. The risks of errors in diagnostic consumerism, with consequent multiplication of exams, often redundant, are on the rise. The authors urge greater control and the adoption of stricter criteria for the selection of clinical skills of operators who are responsible for this delicate, difficult and at the same time valuable diagnostic task, moreover, of great social value.
