The Fremantle Dockers Football team have been using on-field Ultrasound as a way to visualize and diagnose soft tissue injuries with their players. The SonoSite Edge portable Ultrasound system provides beautiful images of the ribs and soft tissues for "match-day" diagnosis. This information allows the physician and coach to make an informed decision of whether the player should be sent back out in the field. The needle guided visualization allows the needle to be correctly placed and therefore, reduces complications.
