Who We Are

The International Veterinary Point-of-Care Ultrasound Society, abbreviated as IVPOCUS, is a 501c3 non-profit organization made up of veterinarians and veterinary professionals who advocate and promote the education and advancement of Veterinary Point-of-Care Ultrasound (VPOCUS) and FAST Ultrasound formats throughout the world to improve patient care and save lives.

What We Do

Veterinary Point-of-Care Ultrasound (V-POCUS) and FAST (Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma, Triage and Tracking) ultrasound examinations are non-invasive, radiation-sparing, safe, point-of-care, and use minimal restraint. "If you can place a stethoscope on your patient, you can place an ultrasound probe." V-POCUS and FAST ultrasound examinations answer important clinical questions within minutes for early detection of effusions and soft tissue abnormalities that better streamline the working diagnosis, better help pick your next best diagnostic test, and better keep alive for gold standard testing and treatment. VPOCUS and FAST are extensions of the physical examination and are fast becoming the greatest advancement in veterinary medicine this decade.
