National and international ultrasound practice is changing and developing within radiology departments and at the point of care. Prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic a paradigm shift has begun as to who performs an ultrasound examination, and where and when it is done. Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been invaluable during the COVID-19 season. During the ultrasound assessment for other pathologies there is the potential to detect ‘incidentalomas’ such as haemangiomas.

The aim of this article is to explore the relationship of POCUS, the detection and differentiation of incidentalomas, and the patient’s management. It will be useful for continuing professional development for radiologists, sonographers, medical physicists and non-radiology healthcare practitioners.
