Great app

This is a great app that serves its purpose well. It is easy to use and walks the novice sonographer through each step of image acquisition for commonly performed scans. I love the sample images that show exactly what to look for! This will be very helpful to have when learning to perform bedside ultrasound as a resident.



Excellent app with clear descriptions for bedside ED ultrasound.
