Radiology Fact of the Month
Bedside Ultrasound vs POCUS
What's the difference between "point-of-care ultrasound" and "bedside ultrasound"? The terms are closely related, but there is a slight difference between the two.

"Bedside Ultrasound" is an older term that describes the sonographic assessment of patients, usually in a medical facility, at the patient's bedside. The term acknowledges the use of portable ultrasound so that a patient is not inconvenienced by the need to physically move to a radiology suite to be scanned.

"Point-of-Care Ultrasound" is a broader term that encapsulates the many scenarios in which portable ultrasound machines can be used. For instance, a patient may be scanned using portable ultrasound while in an ambulance on the way to an emergency room. Or a patient may be scanned in the trauma bay after being delivered to the hospital emergency room. As such, "point-of-care ultrasound" indicates that portable ultrasound can be transported to wherever the patient is located.
