ehealthUltrasound device signifies an important point-of-care (POC) diagnostic modality, which is increasingly being used in several specialties, like musculoskeletal, rheumatology, anaesthesia, pain management, surgery, interventional, and emergency care amongst others. Especially, its use during the critical situations when the physician is able to carry the portable ultrasound system to the point of diagnosis has enabled further expansion of ultrasound use. Despite its widespread utility into clinical practice, point-of-care ultrasound is relatively a new field and many older clinicians had completed their training before ultrasound use was introduced into their respective specialties therefore for their and others training, hospitals and medical institutions are encouraging ultrasound training among the practitioners.ehealth Says, Pavan Behl, Director and General Manager – India & Middle East, FUJIFILM SonoSite India Pvt. Ltd “As this advanced and improving technology continues to become popular in diverse medical specialities, FUJIFILM SonoSite strongly believes that imparting training on effective use of point of care ultrasound is vital and that education and training combined with technical talent makes point-of-care ultrasound a lifesaving tool and improves care delivery along with patient satisfaction. With this reason, since its inception SonoSite India has partnered with leading Indian institutions, associations and medical centres to provide point-of-care ultrasound training to physicians, nurses and other clinicians and helping deliver the best possible care to the society.
Going forward, we plan to hold many more similar workshops in various cities to provide education & training to physicians wanting to integrate point-ofcare ultrasound in their daily practice.” FUJIFILM SonoSite considers physician education and training so critical in the use of POC ultrasound, that it has integrated education and learning in its newest generation of pointof- care ultrasound: the X-Porte™ Ultrasound Kiosk.
