Emergency Ultrasound Web Resources

By Dr Owen Doran, ED Specialist, Auckland AED Ultrasound Lead 


Essentially an online textbook of Emergency Medicine Ultrasound from ACEP- very well laid out, great graphics, and a relatively easy read.


Life in the Fast Lane

This is a great round up of ultrasound resource from the crew at LITFL- my favourite EM site.



These downloadable videos are provided free from CME download. A little dated looking, they are from some of the leading lights in Emergency Department ultrasound, and are well worth a look.


Ultrasound Podcast

An excellent resource from passionate ED sonographers.



This is a fantastic website from the Hennepin County Medical Centre- there are a few great ultrasound videos, as well as other useful clips.



An organisation dedicated to bringing critical care and emergency ultrasound to the world. If you get a chance to attend one of their conferences- jump at it!



For members of the ACEM, there is an ultrasound module as part of the e-learning. This comprises of online lectures, and images for review, with an Australasian bent.

The college website also has guidelines and policies related to ultrasound use in Australasian emergency departments.



The Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine is the peak body for promoting ultrasound in Australasia. As well as education, they are responsible for policy regarding ultrasound, and the promotion of ultrasound in the region.




Some useful education packages on this website.



Some useful resources on the Phillips website.


Courses/ Training  ( see also ASUM)

Australian Institute of Ultrasound

The team at the AIU on the Gold Coast run a range of courses for those interested in Emergency Ultrasound , catering for different levels of training, and also for those wanting more subspecialty areas ( like MSK and ECHO).


Ultrasound Training Solutions

Another popular ultrasound training company.


University of Otago

This is a great course that I completed last year- a one year certificate with an excellent faculty and a great way to hone your skills.


Wellington Ultrasound

This first department in NZ to have their own director of Emergency Ultrasound. They also run courses, so that we don’t have to leave good ole NZ for our sonography training!
