For the Lawyers

Thanks for visiting the Hennepin Ultrasound Blog, where we hope to demonstrate how point-of-care ultrasound can improve patient care in Emergency and Critical Care settings. You’ll find cases where ultrasound is used to make the diagnosis or change management, procedural videos using dynamic ultrasound-guided techniques, as well as tutorial videos on how to perform basic ultrasound exams.
