Ultrasound technology is a rapidly emerging science and the field of anaesthesia has not remained un­touched by its widespread applications. It is playing an increasing role in vascular access, in regional anaes­thesia for nerve blocks and as a transoesophageal echocardiography tool for cardiac imaging and viewing blood flows. It has special applications to assess the depth of epidural space in cases of difficult anatomy or in an otherwise high risk patient where interventional procedure is required. As the ultrasound guidance is becom­ing standard practice of future, anaesthesiologists need to develop a thorough understanding of this technol­ogy& practical skills by training themselves.
