Practical POCUS for Urgent and Primary Care: Diagnosing Renal, Gallbladder and Aortic Pathology
Join emergency physician Dr. Oron Frenkel and primary care physician Dr. Virginia Robinson as they teach practical ultrasound techniques that can save lives.
In this 1-hour webinar, you'll learn just how easy and effective it is to use POCUS to visualize and diagnose common pathology. You’ll learn how to:
- Use ultrasound as the ultimate diagnostic tool for renal pathology
- Quickly identify if patients with abdominal pain have gallbladder disease
- Save patient lives from an abdominal aorta aneurysm rupture
Urgent and Primary Care POCUS experts will show you how handheld ultrasound is improving patient satisfaction, enhancing triage, diagnostic efficiency and value for physicians and their patients from the ER to the clinic, and everywhere in between.
In this era, in-person time between physicians and their patients comes at a high premium. Why do we rely on a 200 year-old instrument for our initial diagnostics? It’s time to acknowledge the limitations of the stethoscope.
Handheld POCUS is disrupting the urgent and primary care world by enabling healthcare practitioners to SEE and diagnose many patient conditions without requiring additional testing. Quick and succinct answers enable physicians to make the decisions that matter in their patients’ lives while generating value for both them and their patients.
Join emergency physician Dr. Oron Frenkel and primary care physician Dr. Virginia Robinson as they teach practical POCUS skills to scan and diagnose renal pathology, gallbladder disease and an abdominal aorta aneurysm. You'll gain confidence in scanning and visualizing the kidneys, gallbladder and aorta using the latest advancements in handheld wireless ultrasound. By comparing healthy to abnormal anatomy, Dr. Robinson will help you hone your ultrasound interpretation skills to more quickly and accurately diagnose common pathologies.
Advances in technology have made ultrasound more affordable and accessible than ever before. You're no longer required to learn complex systems with knobs and buttons to capture high quality imaging. Now, with the miniaturization of high-definition ultrasound and advances in artificial intelligence, learning and using handheld ultrasound imaging is fast, affordable and easy. Register today to explore 5 reasons to add POCUS to your practice and learn how to apply it to three common applications that save lives.
