It's been more than a month since convicted pedophile Tony Leyva skipped parole. Last night, the U-S Attorney announced Leyva was captured in Haiti. Officials say they knew Levya had fled to Haiti within seven days of his disappearance, but it's taken this long to pinpoint his exact whereabouts. Jennifer Wishon has the story.

((IT'S THE DEVICE THAT MOST SYMBOLIZES A DOCTOR... THE STETHOSCOPE... AND IT'S BEEN IN A PHYSICIAN'S BLACK BAG SINCE IT WAS INVENTED IN THE 1800S.
BUT NOW SOME DOCTORS THINK THE HANDHELD ULTRASOUND CAN DO THE JOB MUCH BETTER
i do think things are missed and there are many studies that have shown the ability to analyze the heart correctly are pretty limited when you rely just on the stethoscope.
THAT'S BECAUSE WITH THE STETHOSCOPE YOU CAN ONLY HEAR AN ORGAN LIKE THE HEART
WITH ULTRASOUND... PHYSICIANS CAN ALSO SEE
experts can tell how well is the heart contracting, is there fluid around the heart, is the heart big, and are any of the valves leaking.
SOME DOCTORS SAY OBESITY MAKES IT HARDER TO DIAGNOSE PROBLEMS WITH A TRADITIONAL EXAM.
STANDUP:
doctors who specialize in ultrasound spend several years training to read those images and that has some questioning whether primary care physicians can be quickly trained to know what they are seeing.
either the doctor might miss something that was there, which was significant or in fact he could diagnose something that wasn't there.
HOPKINS RESEARCHERS ARE STUDYING HOW MUCH TRAINING IS NECESSARY FOR PRIMARY CARE DOCTORS TO USE THE HANDHELD ULTRASOUND WELL.
IF THEY CATCH ON QUICKLY ... IT COULD CHANGE THE TRADITIONAL OFFICE VISIT ... AND PRIMARY DOCTORS COULD RULE OUT POTENTIAL PROBLEMS IN THE INITIAL OFFICE VISIT.
