Emergency Ultrasound, An Issue of Ultrasound Clinics

This issue reviews the uses of US for obstetric and gynecologic presentations. Gastrointestinal, abdominal, and genitourinary applications of US in the ER are quite common. The use of US as guidance for ER procedures is also covered in this issue.
