Imaging in the Field- ULTRASOUND

1. If you are lucky enough on a field mission to have an ultrasound handy, you will find this of great use. The portable models are lightweight and easy to pack. Ultrasound can be used for a number of things including abdominal scans, pelvic scans, fetal ultrasounds as well as cardiac and chest scans. No matter what setting whether it be hospital or field, ultrasound can be very useful. Included in this section in the future will be ultrasound courses designed for the field physician. Standby!


2. If working in a hospital setting, keep in mind you will likely be the radiologist, so brush up your radiology skills if need be.
