Description

Point of care ultrasound is being rapidly adopted by the vascular surgical community. However, its application is much broader than vascular surgery and the use and growth of ultrasound technology is shifting away from “specialist” ultrasound towards point of care wireless ultrasound for all.

  • clear easy to follow diagrams illustrate scanning positions and the ultrasound images acquired at these positions
