Future developments

Abstract

In all its forms and applications, sonography plays a significant role in the management of injured patients, from the emergency department to beyond hospital discharge. The use of new and existing sonographic technology will increase because sonographic imaging and measurements are generally less invasive; are inexpensive; use no ionizing radiation; and are portable, repeatable, and, in many instances, as accurate as the so-called 'contemporary gold standards.' The training and credentialing of physicians in sonography is in evolution and will be an increasingly important issue with more widespread use and broader applications. The future of sonography in trauma care in the next millennium is bright, and surgeons and surgical residents are encouraged to gain proficiency and learn about this new surgical frontier as it evolves.
