The FAST Exam

Videos Thursday, October 6, 2016

In this video, Gail takes us through the basics of the veterinary FAST exam with the Clarius Wireless Handheld C7 Vet Ultrasound Scanner. FAST is an acronym for Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma, and is a popular exam used for quick diagnoses in a triage situation. It aims to locate free fluid – essentially, blood – in four main areas on the animal: the diaphragmatic hepatic area, the hepatorenal area, the splenorenal area, and the cysto-colic area.
