An eFAST scan is one of the most commonly utilised scans by Emergency Physicians and Rural Generalists. An eFAST examination consists of six views:
- Subcostal Pericardium
- Coronal Morison’s Pouch (hepato-renal space)
- Coronal Spleno-renal angle
- Right and Left Pleural Spaces
- Anterior Chest (Pneumothorax)

We have put together a 10-part eFAST scan video series demonstrating the ultrasound image acquisition of each of the above listed views. This series is included as part of our pre-course material for students on our Emergency Ultrasound course.
Below is a preview of 1 of 10 videos in this series – How to acquire a subxiphoid view of the heart, using a curvi probe.
