Point-of-Care Ultrasound: At the Crossroads of General Medicine

Authors: Michael Wagner, MD

Abstract

I am honored to introduce this special issue on point-of-care
ultrasound (POCUS) for the Southern Medical Journal on
behalf of a diverse group of physicians. This group is composed
of academic and community physicians who practice in outpatient
and hospital settings, representing multiple institutions
from across the globe. Some learned POCUS early in their training,
whereas some learned it much later, but all have expertise in a
growing field and share a common passion for POCUS because
of its transformative quality in patient care.
