EP 11: Putting Ultrasound Between Doctors’ Hands and Patient Bodies

On today’s episode of the Ultrasound Powered Clinician, Ohad speaks with
Dr. Oron Frenkel, Clinical Lead at Providence Health Care. They discuss the value ultrasound can bring to physicians, why the stethoscope will die and be replaced with handheld ultrasound devices, and the evolution of at-home ultrasound use for monitoring and care.

Topics discussed:

  • The path that led Dr. Frenkel to Vancouver, and the opportunities available for an ultrasound-trained physician in Canada.
  • How Dr. Frenkel’s training integrated ultrasound, from medical school to residency, and why he took a fellowship in ultrasound to continue learning the skill.
  • Why ultrasound can provide a lot of value to rural physicians who don’t have the access to the resources city physicians do.
  • How ultrasound is evolving to become the “new stethoscope,” and how it’s now spreading into specialities to be used for quick diagnostics, procedures, and monitoring.
  • How many use cases for ultrasound exist, especially for at-home monitoring, yet regulations are holding it back.
  • Why every physician should put an ultrasound device between their hands and the patient’s body in order to improve the quality of data that can be gathered from a patient
  • The exciting possibilities of the future of ultrasound created by those who have always used the device.
