Ultrasound in Australia has a long way to go to catch our European counterparts. One of the main aim of the BLUE Team is to familiarise many junior doctors with the potential of ultrasound. On average, it takes 17 years for new discoveries to become mainstream practice, our goal is to significantly reduce this delay.
