Medical Education Ultrasound grants

Research in the Emergency Ultrasound Program focuses on improving patient care through the targeted use of bedside ultrasound. Ultrasound has been demonstrated to improve the speed and accuracy of medical diagnosis, as well as improve the safety and efficiency of bedside procedures.

Current research projects include:

  • Thoracic Rapid Ultrasound in Trauma (TRUST): A multicenter study of the accuracy of bedside ultrasound in the detection of acute injury in penetrating trauma.
  • Prehospital Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma (PFAST): A multicenter study of the feasibility of ultrasound in trauma, performed by emergency medical services in the field.
  • Thoracic Ultrasound in Acute Dyspnea: An evaluation of thoracic ultrasound as compared to standard markers of congestive heart failure in patients with undifferentiated shortness of breath.
  • An evaluation of the accuracy and safety of ultrasound compared to CT scan in the evaluation of pediatric appendicitis.
  • Utility of a clinical decision aid in the evaluation of patients with possible ectopic pregnancy.
