Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound uses sound waves to create images. This section includes echocardiography (echo), transthoracic echo (TTE), transesophageal echo (TEE), echo contrast, transducers, ultrasound software and point of care (POC) ultrasound.

The Philips Lumify hand-held ultrasound technology is an important component of the mobile ECMO unit. Members of the ECMO team use Lumify for real-time visual guidance when inserting tubes in veins and arteries in a process called ECMO cannulation. #RSNA2019 #RSNA19 #POCUS
