Point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) is defined as the acquisition and interpretation of ultrasonographic images generated by the clinician at the bedside. The advent of handheld machines has increased access and practical application of ultrasound technology in internal medicine training and medical education. The most common system involves a single portable ultrasound probe that connects to a smartphone or tablet, and storage of images are stored via cloud-based technology. We discuss our experience with POCUS using handheld ultrasound machines in the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital academic setting.
