The Time for Ultrasound is Now

Abdominal trauma, Measles, Aspirin, and Why the Time for Ultrasound is Now with Resa Lewiss

Health care providers who phantom or “quick look” ultrasound examine are causing the viral spread of an epidemic, which we can minimize by responsibly utilizing ultrasound inpatient care and by implementing the coaching that artificial intelligence provides.

Current trends in point-of-care ultrasound and how the health care provider community can respond are described:

  1. Phantom or‚ Quick look‚ scanning.
  2. Faculty credentialing and learning ultrasound.
  3. Artificial intelligence technology in ultrasound machinery image acquisition and interpretation.

I discuss the phantom or‚ quick look‚ scan and how correcting this behaviour can only come from yourself.

Second I describe my experience with faculty credentialing: being told to learn ultrasound on your own or even being given a faculty credentialing ultrasound education plan generally does not work. I describe the passive and active ways to acquire training. You should not rely upon herd immunity.

Finally, I discuss how errors in human judgement will occur. Ultrasound machinery with artificial intelligence components is increasingly available for image acquisition and pattern recognition so human errors are increasingly minimized.
