This website, which will provide the foundation for a basic understanding of Emergency Ultrasound (EUS), is also an enormous work-in-progress. The key to proficiency in, and eventual mastery of, Emergency Ultrasound is practice. Following every lecture, every tutorial, every case discussion, apply your skill-set in the ED. Scan every sore abdomen, every pregnancy with cramping, every shortness of breath or chest pain. Developing a sense of "normal" allows for quick identification of what is "abnormal". This site would not be possible without an ongoing collaboration with Dr. Anthony Dean and Dr. Nova Panebianco, both of whom lead the Emergency Ultrasound program at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
I hope you enjoy the site.....and I welcome any and all feedback!
