Rapid access to FAST scanning and a durable construction make SonoSite’s S-FAST point-of-care ultrasound system ideal for use in a busy A&E department, according to Dr Richard MacCallum, consultant in emergency medicine at Stirling Royal Infirmary.
Dr MacCallum explained: “Since obtaining our S-FAST system in February 2009, it has proven an invaluable tool for emergency medicine, offering user-friendly FAST scanning and good image quality for consultants and trainees alike. FAST scanning is now a compulsory element of emergency medicine training, and the intuitive controls of the S-FAST make it ideal for inexperienced users, even in an emergency setting.
