Diagnostic Imaging: Stanford and POCUS during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Diagnostic Imaging spoke with Dr. Andre Kumar, a hospitalist at Stanford University Division of Hospital Medicine. Kumar is also the co-president of the Society of Hospital Medicine Bay Area Chapter and the director of the medicine consult and procedure service. Given his particular interest in the use of point-of-care ultrasound during the pandemic era, we spoke with him about how he is using the modality, what benefits it has provided over the past year, and what the future holds for implementing the technology both with COVID-19-positive patients and individuals with other medical conditions. Here’s what he had to say.
