Resa Lewiss, Director of Point-of-Care Ultrasound and Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine and Radiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, explains why and how ultrasound at the bedside has become a game changer for clinical care.
"Disruptive innovation is about vision first, not technology first. And point-of-care ultrasound is one of the most positively disruptive innovations to hit healthcare in a very long time." - Resa Lewiss
Resa Lewiss is on a mission to ensure that point-of-care ultrasonology becomes a part of the toolkit of every physician—from the emergency medicine residents she trains in New York City to other health care providers in places ranging from Brazil to Sweden, Madagascar to India. She is the director of Point-of-Care Ultrasound and Associate Professor in the Departments of Emergency Medicine and Radiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. In her spare time, she conducts her life like a vector—with velocity and direction and the aid of espresso, which like Resa is preferred short, dark, and powerful.
