About us

Ultrasound Guidance was borne out of our common passion for educating the next generation of physicians.  We believe that ultrasound will take on an increasingly important role in the evaluation and diagnosis of disease across multiple areas of medicine. But educational opportunities for ultrasound still lag behind the demand for them. Available opportunities are often overly expensive and can cost thousands of dollars for a single course!  Existing resources often lack careful labeling, easy navigability, and multi-device accessibility to make them usable for busy learners whenever they need the information.  We saw this situation and improved on it in every way.

We realized there was a need for high quality, highly detailed ultrasound education that is accessible to everyone. We’ve carefully designed Ultrasound Guidance to act as a starting point for learners of all levels, from ultrasound neophytes to experienced clinicians. We’ve focused both on creating high quality content and on making sure that our content is easy to access when you need it. We’re thrilled you’ve chosen us to help you in your ultrasound journey.  You are on your way to becoming an expert!
