OB/GYN clinicians who deal with women’s health often have naturally demanding patients. The ability to safely and reliably monitor health and measure growth, make ultrasound the diagnostic tool of choice.
Point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) is an especially important diagnostic tool allowing for an ultrasound machine to be easily transferred from room to room or clinic to clinic to perform diagnostic imaging. POCUS helps your practice reduce unnecessary costs and delays. When point of care ultrasound is utilized imaging timing decreases and accuracy increases. This results in more comfortable and satisfied patients. Point of care ultrasound is also an excellent option for OB/GYN clinicians who are working in the field or in resource limited settings.

There are a variety of Women’s Health POCUS on the market suited for the OB/GYN field. National Ultrasound’s expert team, made up of experienced sonographers, has highlighted four units from entry, mid, high and flagship levels. These units were selected based on their features, options, performance and price to help you identify a unit best suited to fit your practices needs and budget.
