Ultrasound is one of the fastest growing modalities for emergency physicians to use in patient care. Ultrasound imaging enhances the emergency provider’s ability to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients. Because ultrasound imaging is often time-dependent in the acutely ill or injured patient, Emergency physicians are in an ideal position to use this technology to advance patient care and safety. Focused ultrasound examinations provide immediate information and can answer specific questions about the patient’s physical condition.
