Research goal: optimization of peripheral regional anaesthesia under ultrasound. Material and Methods. Study has been performed by SonoSite Edge (SonoSite, Bothell, США) on a lineal transducer machine for fixed terms 38-mm (13-6 MHz) of overall gain and depth. The study included 2 sonographic needles and 2 non-sonographic needles. Ultrasound images were obtained and analyzed by an experienced anaesthesiologist. Results. In this study improved ultrasound imaging needle for peripheral regional anaesthesia using technology SonoMBe compared with a conventional scanning mode has been demonstrated. Conclusions. SonoMBe technology increases the echogenicity of needles for peripheral regional anaesthesia that allows the use of this technology gain in the performance of nerve block and plexus block anesthesia
