Isn’t technology amazing.
This week we welcomed onboard the GE VScan Air – the latest in a growing arsenal of handheld systems making a splash in the world of POCUS. Images that could be achieved on large systems only a few years ago are now commonplace in a small, lightweight package – all at a price an individual can now afford.
And this accessibility makes developing your own scanning abilities all the more important – knowing how to optimise and troubleshoot your images underpins confidence and results in better patient outcomes.
So if ultrasound is on your end of financial year wish list, get in touch. We can bundle a system and education together for you to give you the technology and skills that will keep you at the cutting edge.
See you next week
Suean and Mike
P.S. – our awesome #coachingcorner with James and Mark on POCUS in podiatry is now available anytime on our website.
