Once you have the image you like on the screen, you simply press “Freeze” to capture it. Since you have a 512-frame cineloop (covered in the next section), you do not have to be spot-on with when you press “Freeze.” As soon as you have an image you like, hold it there a few moments if you can, but then don’t worry if you or the patient moves — simply press “Freeze.” (In the first step of the post-capture work flow, you will back up to the frame you want to work with.)

Note: Pressing “Freeze” both freezes and un-freezes the image. So after you freeze an image you like, be careful not to press the button again until you’re totally done with the image. When you press “Freeze” again it will un-freeze the image (meaning, the image will be gone), and you will go back to scanning again. You’ll notice that when you are live, scanning for an image, it will say “Focus” at the bottom right corner of your screen. When you freeze an image, it will change to saying “Scroll.”

When delivering a guided-injection:

  1. Bring up a good image on the screen.
  2. Have a nurse or an assistant take over the probe, maintaining angle and pressure.
  3. With your hands now free, deliver the injection as usual.
  4. Watch for the needle (sometimes visible, sometimes not) and the liquid (always visible).
  5. Remove the needle from the patient’s foot.
  6. Press “Freeze.”
  7. Scroll the trackball to the left, backing up, to find a frame where the injection was taking place.
  8. You don’t need to see the needle, just the liquid going in. This is the frame you will use.
