The Use of Handheld Ultrasound Devices – An EFSUMB Position Paper

The miniaturization of ultrasound equipment in the form of tablet- or smartphone-sized ultrasound equipment is a result of the rapid evolution of technology and handheld ultrasound devices (HHUSD). This position paper of the European Federation of Societies in Ultrasound and Medicine (EFSUMB) assesses the current status of HHUSD in abdominal ultrasound, pediatric ultrasound, targeted echocardiography and heart ultrasound, and we will report position comments on the most common clinical applications. Also included is a SWOT (Strength – Weaknesses – Opportunities – Threats) analysis, the use for handheld devices for medical students, educational & training aspects, documentation, storage and safety considerations.

Cancer Diagnosis

In Germany there are yearly approximately 9000 people developing liver cancer and the numbers rise distinctly. During the last 35 years the number of new cases doubled.

If ultrasound diagnosis is combined with specific blood testing, then liver carcinoma can even be detected at a very early stage. Current meta-analysis research scientists from the US discovered that this way 40 percent more tumors can be detected at an early stage. DEGUM experts in front of this background call attention to the relevance of high-quality diagnosis.

Aims and scope

Ultraschall in der Medizin / European Journal of Ultrasound publishes scientific papers and contributions from a variety of disciplines on the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of ultrasound with an emphasis on clinical application. Technical papers with a physiological theme as well as the interaction between ultrasound and biological systems might also occasionally be considered for peer review and publication, provided that the translational relevance is high and the link with clinical applications is tight. The editors and the publishers reserve the right to publish selected articles online only. Authors are welcome to submit supplementary video material. Letters and comments are also accepted, promoting a vivid exchange of opinions and scientific discussions.
