– less hocus, more pocus.

How digital transformation leads to major changes in healthcare and what that means for the future of pocus. Technology tends to ignite societal changes. One of these that the access to technology goes along with democratization. This happened with mobility once the car was invented, it happend to music, once the record was invented, and it happened to banking, retail etc. with the rise of the internet.

Teaching POCUS

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) continues to evolve as an essential adjunct to clinical examination not only in the acute care setting but also in other disciplines such as critical care medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics. There is a wide array of simulation and clinical integration strategies for POCUS training. The common approach often begins with workshops and conferences with didactics, phantoms,simulators and live models to simulate bedside skills and techniques. The purpose of this presentation is to outline potential strategies and techniques to optimize POCUS training / teaching.

Automating Workflows via AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms have made great strides in medical imaging over the past number of years; ultrasound somewhat lags behind other modalities in this area because of the real-time imaging aspect and there being a greater push over the last 20 years for bedside interpretation instead of the traditional radiological over-read.

AI for ultrasound imaging

AI has become ubiquitous across many application domains. In medical imaging, AI methods (often deep neural networks) are already used to automatically analyze and interpret images, automate measurements, and support users in decision making. Such solutions will increasingly find their way into the systems and to the users.

for the 2nd edition of the international Point of Care Ultrasound Conference, 12 May 2022 in a hybrid format.

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) uses ultrasound systems that allow quick diagnoses of medical conditions or echographic guidance of interventions. It is emerging as a reliable and valid tool in various clinical situations, such as emergency departments, intensive care units, perioperative care, general ward, and even in pre-hospital situations.
