Portable, Durable Ultrasound for Sports Medicine
Sports medicine professionals know their patients' health and sports careers might be on the line. They also know that SonoSite’s point-of-care ultrasound and needle visualization technology can help provide on-the-spot answers, whether in the office, on the field, or nearly anywhere sports injuries occur. Assessing trauma in real time contributes significantly to a clinician's ability to get a professional athlete or "weekend warrior" quickly into treatment, or safely back in the game.
In Sports Medicine, the "point-of-care" can be pretty much anywhere - field side, track side, roadside. That's when the durability and portability of SonoSite ultrasound machines really shine through.

What Sports Medicine Customers Say About SonoSite Point-of-Care Ultrasound
“I just saw the superior glenohumeral ligament under the biceps with the X-Porte; I could never see this before. Super cool!"
Alan M. Hirahara, MD, FRCSC; Orthopedic surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine
“Rapid, efficient, and powerful imaging allows orthopedic surgeons to improve patient care and decrease overall health costs."
John S. Reach Jr., MD, Director of the Yale Foot and Ankle Service, Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut
“Hand-carried ultrasound is less expensive, readily available, and provides excellent resolution with no radiation. On the other hand, an MRI can be difficult to schedule, cannot be brought to the point of care, and cannot be used on patients with pacemakers or those who suffer from claustrophobia."
Levon Nazarian, MD, Professor of Radiology, Vice Chairman of Education, Director of Muscular Ultrasound, Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
