Abstract

Ultrasound for diagnosis and staging of schistosomiasis and echinococcosis have paved the way over the past several decades for the application of ultrasound in tropical diseases. Until recently, the size and cost of ultrasound systems limited the application in low-resource settings. The increase in portable ultrasound systems has given more clinicians access to ultrasound, and clinically based protocols for the care of patients have emerged, such as focused assessment with sonography for HIV/TB and tropical cardiac ultrasound. This article explores the history and current use of ultrasound in these diseases and highlights their application in the care of patients.
