Summary of "General Pediatric Clinical Applications of POCUS: Part 1."

The use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) performed by non-radiologists has become more widespread and is entering new arenas of clinical care. Children in particular are prime candidates for ultrasound, as they are both usually thinner than adults and are particularly at risk from the harmful effects of ionizing radiation. In this two-part article, we propose 10 uses of POCUS that pediatricians can apply to their practice in both inpatient and outpatient settings. [Pediatr Ann. 2020;49(3):e147-e152.].
