A Field Guide to Bedside Ultrasound
by Shyr Chui and Meagan Moi




Over recent years, the miniaturization and falling cost of medical ultrasound technology have led to widespread interest from clinicians looking to improve their bedside diagnostic skills and augment their clinical decision-making. Education in its use, however, has lagged behind the improvements in technology, leaving a “skills gap” which prevents its wider adoption. This book is designed to aid beginners in their use of ultrasound technology, to help them overcome the early learning hurdles and build their experience. The book is written in simple language and offers the raw basic essentials for those starting out, as well as some useful practical tips for speeding up learning. The book takes the reader on a “learning journey” starting with basic technique, slowly building in complexity and finishing with more advanced techniques to match the learner’s increasing mastery of this valuable diagnostic tool.


Shyr Chui is a radiologist with 20 years hands-on ultrasound experience. He obtained both his Bachelor of Arts and Medical Degrees at the University of Oxford before spending three years working in Internal Medicine and acquiring membership of the Royal College of Physicians. He completed residency training in Diagnostic Radiology at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital, London. He is currently practicing in Northern British Columbia, Canada.

Meagan Moi is a dual trained general and cardiac sonographer with work experience in a hospital clinical setting for the past three years. She is a graduate of the British Columbia Institute of Technology with a diploma of Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Prior to her career as a sonographer, she obtained her Bachelor of Health Sciences from the University of Northern British Columbia.
