Application of EagleView ultrasound in emergency cases in small clinics
- by Dr. Wong Lin Ho, MB BCh BAO and Prof. Wong Pang Ong, PhD, OFJ Medical
50 year old Asian, male, presented to our clinic with dysuria, haematuria and Right loin tenderness. He was previously seen at ED on the same day but the x-ray was inconclusive. We subsequently utilized the Dual-Head Ultrasound from EagleView and subsequently discovered a renal stone within the right kidney.
Given a small clinic like ours, a portable ultrasound is important as it helps to save the space required for the storage. The rapid charging function also reduces the time required for us to charge prior to usage. Pricing wise, it is way cheaper than other ultrasounds that I have seen which costs up to SGD 20,000 ($14,799).
