The use of bed-side ultrasound is growing — but are ERs ready?
from By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
Ultrasonographic investigation — in its traditional approach — involves many steps and multiple professionals, including radiologists and certified sonographers. This approach might not be necessarily helpful for critically-ill patients and immediate patient management. However, recent technological advances in ultrasonography, inherent safety, relative ease of use and portable machines capable of producing high-quality imaging have made it an invaluable point-of-care tool.
