“Point-of-care ultrasound is a perfect tool for screening patients with shoulder and elbow problems in the primary diagnostic setting, and we work with two SonoSite point-of-care ultrasound systems – an EDGE® and an X-Porte® – for this reason. Ultrasound offers a dynamic examination, and has the advantage that both shoulders – or elbows – can easily be scanned. This allows comparison of healthy and damaged joints, which is really useful, since everyone has their own unique anatomy. It is also highly beneficial for post-operative monitoring of patients’ progress, as well as for needle guidance during joint injections. In addition, easy-to-use, point-of-care ultrasound systems with good image quality enable clinicians to work independently of the location; portable instruments, such as the EDGE, can simply be carried from site to site. This allows ultrasound to be used whenever and wherever it is required, which is a big advantage.”
