Artifacts in ultrasound are more of a nuisance and can contribute to misleading diagnostic information. Artifacts can be attributed to a hardware problem such as holding the transducer incorrectly or be related to the imaging technique and software such as B-Mode or Doppler. However, scientists at the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) are developing an ultrasound technology that uses "Twinkling Artifact" to detect and push through kidney stones.

Buying new, used or refurbished ultrasound equipment can be a stressful decision for any physician looking to increase patient services in their practice. Investing thousands of dollars into capital equipment can be a risk, but you can mitigate those risks by doing your homework:
- Research which patient services will be best for the demographic of your practice
- Understand the changes in reimbursement and billing
- Market your practice and the new patient services offered
- Obtain education and training from trusted sources
- Explore ultrasound resellers if buying used or refurbished ultrasound equipment
Many resellers have contracts in place to represent and sell new ultrasound equipment, often this arrangement can be a better partnership for a physician practice as opposed to buying from the large OEM like GE Healthcare or Siemens Medical – with a smaller company you get the same great equipment from the OEM but more personalized service when it comes to education, training, service, and a warranty.
