Neville M. Alberto, MBBS, MD, FACP, is a hospitalist at Sanford Health in Fargo, N.D., will explain his experience using the GE Vscan hand-held, point-of-care ultrasound system.  

The trend towards the use of hand-held ultrasound for the evaluation of patients continues to grow. The ease of use and its compact size is enabling physicians to benefit from the use of ultrasound in a number of clinical settings – giving them the means to provide patient care with real-time visual data to rapidly inform clinical decision-making, while encouraging a “return to the bedside” and more direct patient contact.

Neville Alberto, M.D., Hospitalist at Sanford Health, provides a provide a review of his implementation of hand-held ultrasound in a hospital setting and addresses the need for training to become competent and familiar with ultrasound as well as a hospital-wide program to train and educate residents. Alberto reviews practical applications and case examples where ultrasound was used and changed or enhanced the patient care based on the findings.

The webinar took place Oct. 12, 2016.
