POCUS in Family Medicine & Primary Care

It has been well documented that the use of ultrasound enhances the physical exam by providing additional information to make more informed clinical decisions, improve patient care and increase patient satisfaction. It can also play a role in reducing costs associated with referrals for advanced imaging. For family medicine and primary care providers needs can vary according to the remoteness of the practice, sometimes needing to take on a more emergency type role. Examinations can range from simple rule-in examinations, such as Gallstones or AAA, to a more comprehensive expansion of the physical exam. The availability of smaller, less expensive POCUS devices is expanding the interest in offering ultrasound services in family medicine and primary care practices. The advantages of Kosmos AI can help reduce the learning curve and expand the potential uses in the family medicine and primary care environment.
