Standard ultrasound equipment is all that is needed for BUS. Pre-study training will be conducted for sonographers to acquire the study BUS images using standardized technique. Pre-study training of radiologists will also be conducted to standardize the interpretation of BUS findings for NEC. All BUS for NEC ordering, acquisition, and interpretation in the study will be the same as the standard workflow for any other imaging ordered in the clinical setting. All BUS performed as part of the study will not be charged to patients.
