Point of Care Ultrasound

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is the application of ultrasound at the point of care to make immediate patient-care decisions, often to evaluate an emergency medical condition. POCUS is rapidly replacing the stethoscope at the bedside, providing immediate diagnoses often with greater sensitivity and specificity than chest x-rays and CT.
