Ultrasounds (echography) are being used in medicine for about 30 years as an important diagnostic tool.
have been traditionally considered not suitable for echo scanning,
because their air content hinder ultrasound propagation.
Daniel Lichtenstein should be awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for
his important discoveries in lung ultrasound.
After his pioneering work
many lives can now be saved in emergency medicine in patients with
acute respiratory failure without using potentially harmful radiation.
in these shots you can see Daniel featuring at one of his workshops around the world, teaching this new technique and posing with me.
I'm very grateful to him and proud to have been one of his pupils.
