Join world-renowned urologist, teacher, and surgeon-scientist researcher Dr. Kevin Zorn as he shares point-of-care ultrasound techniques to optimize clinical workflows, reduce wait times, and improve out-patient management.

In this 1-hour webinar, you learn how wireless ultrasound can supplement the physical examination for a quick and thorough assessment of the lower urinary tract.  Join Dr. Zorn as he describes:

  • Fundamentals and capabilities of POCUS in urology
  • The ultrasound appearance of normal and obstructed kidneys
  • Techniques for imaging and measuring bladder urinary volume along with bladder wall pathologies in patients with urinary retention
  • Transrectal along with transabdominal ultrasound for the assessment of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH)
  • The use of unique endocavity ultrasound to guide effective periprostatic blocks prior to REZUM procedures
  • Ultrasound of the scrotum and penis with a high-resolution linear scanner

Point-of-Care ultrasound has become the urologist’s stethoscope in recent years, empowering them to make accurate, rapid bedside and patient-shared decisions. POCUS supports what Dr. Zorn calls the “one-and-done visit”, streamlining care by reducing imaging wait times, anxiety, and ultimately improving the entire patient experience.   

As access to affordable, lightweight, portable ultrasound technology improves, more and more healthcare providers can provide high-resolution imaging in a variety of clinical settings, including outpatient clinics and emergency settings. Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive, painless, non-ionizing, and can be used for various urological applications ranging from retroperitoneal, abdominal, pelvic and penoscrotal.   

Coupled with advanced settings (Doppler flow, elastography), POCUS imaging can help the urologist with their investigation of flank pain, measuring post-void residual, or assessing scrotal enlargement. 

To improve patient overall workflow, the provider can offer rapid and serial evaluations on first and subsequent visits, improving the efficiency of patient visits, which leads to increased patient satisfaction and better care.      

Dr. Zorn shares experiences, insights, and best practices in using POCUS to streamline patient care in urology. Whether you’re a seasoned urologist, and healthcare professional, or simply interested in the latest advancements in wireless ultrasound, this webinar offers a valuable opportunity to take your scanning skills to the next level.
