Emergency Medicine Foundation, GE Healthcare Partner to Advance Ultrasound Use in Emergency Medicine

September 5, 2007 - The Emergency Medical Foundation (EMF) and GE Healthcare have entered into a one-year educational partnership to promote scientific knowledge and medical advancement of emergency medicine ultrasound.
The goal of the one-year educational partnership is to support ultrasound use in emergency medicine. The partnership will include two ultrasound training days for emergency medicine residents.
EMF is an organization funding innovative clinical and laboratory research. GE is the only ultrasound company working with EMF to sponsor the organization's educational, scientific and mission-related activities.
Ultrasound can be used as an integral part of an emergency physician's training. Besides uses in general imaging, OB/GYN and cardiology uses, emergency physicians can use ultrasound to image trauma in the patient's chest or abdomen. Ultrasound gives emergency physicians information within seconds, which can help clinicians to make triage decisions, such as scanning a patient and determining where the patient should be sent next, such as surgery.
The EMF is the oldest organization with the sole purpose of supporting research and education in the specialty, founded in 1972 to help create the scientific basis of the specialty.
EMF, the education and research arm of the American College of Emergency Physicians, is the only national organization organized for the specific purpose of funding research in emergency medicine. EMF's mission is to support the science of emergency medicine in order to improve patient care and practice. ACEP is a national medical specialty society representing emergency medicine with more than 25,000 members.
