Fujifilm SonoSite Launches New Point-of-Care Ultrasound Educational Resources

November 1, 2018 — Fujifilm SonoSite Inc. announced the launch of its redesigned SonoSite Institute, a comprehensive online educational resource dedicated to empowering and educating healthcare providers about point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS). Based on the feedback of current global users, the enhanced website now features an improved user experience, easier-to-locate content and reconfigured learning paths.

Originally launched in November 2015, SonoSite Institute is web-based resource available on any internet-enabled device — phone, tablet or PC — allowing users to learn and study whenever and wherever is convenient for them. Self-paced, users learn at the speed that works best for them to gain the confidence required to use POCUS in everyday practice, while also branching out and becoming proficient in a variety of specialties.

New and enhanced features include an intuitive platform that allows users to quickly search for specific POCUS applications including case studies, webinars, clinical images, videos and more — across a wide array of specialties. The redesigned learning paths include courses that allow users to rate their base knowledge and track progress with built-in evaluation benchmarks as well as print out certificates upon successful completion of each course. In addition, users will find fresh specialty-specific content created by POCUS practitioners including deep dives into topics such as central line management and eFAST exams, as well as trending applications like perioperative, transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and nerve blocks for opioid avoidance. Finally, SonoSite Institute also offers reimbursement guides for coding and billing procedures in the U.S.

SonoSite Institute is available exclusively to SonoSite customers and is included with all system purchases. Customers can register with a SonoSite ultrasound serial number.

Figure 1 from the new ASE ischemia cardiac ultrasound imaging guidelines, showing a side-by-side views of apical 4- and 2-chamber images, at rest and immediately post-exercise. In the four-chamber view, the left ventricle is shown on the left-hand side of the screen. With exercise, the echocardiogram shows the LV cavity dilates (right quadrants) and there are regional wall motion abnormalities in the LAD territory.
