School of Medicine, GE Introduce Ultrasound Pilot Study

The University of South Carolina School of Medicine has been chosen by GE Healthcare as the nation’s first medical school to test an ultrasound device that could revolutionize diagnostic medicine. // University of South Carolina medical students are testing GE Healthcare’s LOGIQ E ultrasound equipment as part of a pioneering curriculum that includes the use of ultrasound technology across four years of medical education.

What these future doctors learn – and share with GE Healthcare – could enable a primary care physician to detect a patient’s medical problem sooner.

The portable units, about the size of a laptop computer, weigh 10 pounds and are a sharp contrast to the heavy and cumbersome ultrasound machines that weighed about 300 pounds just five years ago.

Dr. Richard Hoppmann, interim dean of the USC School of Medicine, said, “The School of Medicine Class of 2010 is embarking on a truly novel approach in diagnostic medicine. The goal of our curriculum is to expand the use of ultrasound as a diagnostic tool in many areas of medicine, but especially in primary care fields.”

Medical students will learn about the benefits of ultrasound for family and preventive medicine and internal medicine, as well as surgery, obstetrics and gynecology and its uses in emergency medicine.

“The ultrasound curriculum adds an exciting hands-on component with immediate results that show our students the practical applications of technology in medicine," Hoppmann said. "As a result of our enhanced curriculum, we see energy and enthusiasm in the classroom.”

The medical school also has added an ultrasound curriculum for students in their second, third and fourth years of medical education.

GE Healthcare is relying on the medical students’ feedback for the design of the company’s ultrasound equipment. In fact, the ultrasound machine in the near future may well be about the size of a Personal Digital Assista
