Key Principles

The Royal college of radiologists state that “Since 2005 there has been continuing growth in the availability of ultrasound and with it an acknowledgement that it can play an ever-increasing role in the diagnosis and management of patients” and that “there is a growing need to provide ultrasound in other settings; for instance, in the community or by the patient’s bedside in critical care.”

Two key principles of EMUS are:

  • It is focused in nature, as distinct from radiologist and sonographer use
  • It aims to rule in pathology resulting in the ability to come to a rapid diagnosis with confidence, but it does not rule out pathology
