 Point of care ultrasonography (POCUS) is the term used when non-radiologist medical staff use a portable ultrasound at the bedside as an adjunct to their clinical examination. Point of care ultrasound use is well established in Emergency and Intensive Care Medicine where it is used to answer a wide variety of diagnostic questions such as determining if a pneumothorax is present or if there is evidence of severe right hear strain suggestive a pulmonary embolism. In palliative medicine, point of care ultrasonography is less well established although it is frequently used for confirming the diagnosis and aiding the drainage of ascites. Point of care ultrasonography (POCUS) is the term used when non-radiologist medical staff use a portable ultrasound at the bedside as an adjunct to their clinical examination.
