Ultrasound Research

The Emergency Ultrasound faculty members in the Department of Emergency Medicine are very active in clinical research relevant to point-of-care-ultrasound (POCUS) in emergency practice. Our research endeavors generally fall within one or more of the following broad categories: assessing the effectiveness and feasibility of novel ultrasound technology, techniques, and applications; implementation of POCUS in global health; and POCUS in medical student and resident education.
