sonography is a very good diagnostic modality to differentiate and determine the severity at an early stage the cause of fever due to dengue or typhoid, which has clinicopathological similar findings in early stage.

Yes,early detection of plasma leakage,particularly in pleural and peritoneal cavities is facilitated by USG/E,if the patient is deteriorating,passing less urine,is getting irritable or there are any changes in mentation,if the BP is falling down,or there is reduced pulse pressure,if there is tender liver enlargement,go immediately for USG/E. It may impact on survival.
