Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS)

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) includes the use us smaller, less expensive ultrasound systems to assess, triage patients in an office or emergency department setting. The imaging modality offers immediate images with no waiting to assess if a patient requires immediate change in care or more advanced imaging assessment. POCUS is also used in catheterization labs to guide vascular access and to guide anesthesia needle placement. POCUS systems also are being used in developing countries as a way to access immediate, inexpensive medical imaging.

An example of Philips' TrueVue technology, which offers photo-realistic rendering and the ability to change the location of the lighting source on 3-D ultrasound images. In this example of two Amplazer transcatheter septal occluder devices in the heart, the operator demonstrating the product was able to push the lighting source behind the devices into the other chamber of the heart. This illuminated a hole that was still present that the occluders did not seal.
