What is Ultrasound First?

Ultrasound First is an endeavor devoted to education and increasing awareness of the effectiveness of ultrasound in enhancing patient care.

Consider the benefits...

Safe Ultrasound emits NO ionizing radiation. It may be all you need.

Effective Ultrasound has comparable or superior diagnostic capability in a growing number of imaging scenarios making it the smart diagnostic choice.

Affordable Ultrasound is an inexpensive and portable tool that can provide faster diagnosis. Image more for less.

For appropriate clinical conditions, ultrasound offers clear safety and economic advantages over radiographic exams, and yet evidence suggests that ultrasound is underutilized. Many clinicians are unaware of the range of conditions for which ultrasound first is an established guideline, and the gap only grows larger as research extends ultrasound's diagnostic value.
