Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) empowers physicians to act immediately and with greater insight. Whether it is a clinical decision, or a procedure, point of care ultrasound gives physicians eyes on the inside, and has been described as the new stethoscope.
A growing field, POCUS is now part of the medical training of graduates and fellows at many schools and colleges world-wide.
