Ultrasound Research

Emergency Medicine Ultrasound

A commitment to scientific discovery is one of the defining characteristics of Stanford Medicine, thus one of the primary goals of the Emergency Ultrasound Division is to perform high quality and high impact emergency ultrasound research. This page was designed to offer insight to potential resident/fellow applicants, collaborators, donors or other interested individuals on the current emergency ultrasound research and the research resources available at Stanford.

Recent Research and Educational Grants

Department of Defense grants for basic-science CPR research

Stanford mini-grant for annual continuing medical education workshop

Pfizer grant for web-based ultrasound education

Our ultrasound faculty and emergency medicine residents typically present abstracts at the AIUM, AHA, ACEP, and SAEM annual meetings. If you are attending any of these meetings in the near future, look us up - we would love to answer questions about what we are doing at Stanford. We have also presented at other national and international meetings.
