We have seven clinical ultrasound machines (Phillips Sparq, Sonosite S-series, three Sonosite Edges, two Sonosite M-Turbos, and a Sonosite PX), which help build ultrasound expertise. All ultrasound images are exported wirelessly and stored digitally. Every scan performed by residents is reviewed for QA purposes through QpathE, an industry-leading middleware product.
Handheld ultrasounds are on each of our three Med Flight helicopters to guide resuscitation and triage by flight physicians, with ongoing research projects exploring utilization and scope. We utilize and teach advanced applications, including TEE, and we employ multiple high-fidelity ultrasound simulators that augment our ultrasound educational and credentialing offerings and provide realistic examples of emergent sonographic pathology.
