TeraRecon Inc. has signed an agreement with the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) to deploy its UF-750XT portable color Doppler ultrasound system for clinical practice, research applications, and hands-on teaching of ultrasound imaging techniques to radiologists, osteopathic physicians, and medical students.
Ultrasound is being widely adopted by Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) in the assessment and visualization of the musculoskeletal system. Ultrasound imaging assists the physician in the rapid evaluation of soft tissue, tendon, ligament and muscle injuries. Color Doppler ultrasound also allows for rapid and accurate assessment and imaging of abdominal pathology and for various peripheral arterial and venous conditions.
PCOM trains physicians, health practitioners, and behavioral scientists that practice a "whole person" approach, treating people, not just symptoms. PCOM offers the doctor of osteopathic medicine degree and graduate programs in psychology, physician assistant studies, forensic medicine, organizational development and leadership, and biomedical sciences.
