That was a great talk! I think it was the finest lecture pertaining to POC (point-of-care) ultrasound that I’ve ever heard. Thanks again for your time, effort, and expertise. Will look forward to collaborating with you on future endeavors!

Steve Venticinque, M.D.

We had Dr. Lisciandro join us as a guest lecturer upon the Grand Opening of our emergency and referral practice, and all of our veterinary staff has now been trained in the use of FAST exams and Vet Blue. Having FAST at our fingertips has allowed our staff to rapidly diagnose and intervene in critical emergencies efficiently, cost-effectively to our clients, and without great stress to our patients. It is an essential component to nearly all of our triaged cases and is now an integral part of our initial database.

”FAST” has made the use of ultrasonography more accessible and less intimidating to our ER vets, and it’s standardized approach makes transferring of cases between clinicians seamless and universal.

In short, we could never go back to a”pre-FAST” way of practicing medicine. Thank you Greg for a great day of lectures and for a fantastic wet lab. We eagerly await your publication to add to our library!
