Ultrasound Working Group

The main objective of Ultrasound Working Group is to improve the diusion and dissemination of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS)  in  the  clinical  practice  of internists in Europe. The first task of the Working Group is to produce a positiondocument. This will  identify  clinical scenarios where ultrasound, applied at the point of care, may enhance diagnostic accuracy, assessment of prognosis or treatment monitoring. The Ultrasound Working Group will also define a POCUS training and proficiency framework.
