Hand-carried ultrasound system provides Selly Oak Hospital with point-of-care diagnostics

SonoSite : 21 August, 2008  (Application Story)
The acute medicine service at Selly Oak Hospital, University Hospital Birmingham NHS Trust, UK, is using a SonoSite MicroMaxx hand-carried ultrasound system for fast, point-of-care diagnostic imaging of patients.
“Targeted bedside Ultrasound imaging helps me to look at the patient's condition in more detail without needing to send them to a radiology department,” explained Dr Nandan Gautam, consultant in medicine and critical care at the University Hospital. “I see any non-surgical patient that comes in through unselected acute medicine admissions, including the critically ill.”

“With the MicroMaxx system, I can image body cavities and anatomy to assess details such as cardiac structural abnormalities, venous structural abnormalities, fluid stasis, clots, gallstones, and renal and liver architecture,” Dr Gautam continued. “The portability of the MicroMaxx and its image quality are vital for these procedures, and the system's data storage capacity is also very helpful.”
