The goals and objectives of the Perioperative Point-of-Care Ultrasound SIG are as follows.


  • Define and prioritize educational needs and disseminate educational material pertaining to perioperative sonography
  • Define and integrate perioperative sonography topics relevant to anesthesiology residents as well as regional anesthesia and acute pain fellows


  • Identify current gaps and encourage clinical and outcomes research in the area of perioperative sonography
  • Advance the body of knowledge in perioperative sonography and create publications relevant to ASRA members with an interest in the area


  • Integrate perioperative sonography in the practice of (regional) anesthesiologists to improve patient care and outcomes
  • Develop and standard indications, approaches, and techniques of perioperative sonography

The Perioperative Point-of-Care Ultrasound SIG was established in Fall 2015 to allow regional anesthesiologists with an interest in perioperative ultrasound to advance the knowledge and expand the scientific body of perioperative point-of-care (POC) ultrasound aimed at improving the care of patients undergoing procedures involving regional anesthesia.
